St. Luke's Pancreas Transplant Program
Since the first organ transplant at St. Luke's more than 30 years ago, doctors have gained a better understanding of the body's immune system and how to prevent organ rejection. Significant advancements in immunosuppressive therapy and transplant technology have resulted in dramatic improvements not only in the length of life following transplant but also in the quality of life.
Following recovery from pancreas transplant surgery, most patients regain their health and strength and are able to resume everyday activities, including work and driving, within a few months.
Your transplant clinic physician and team will provide more detailed information on the safest time for you to regain normal activity.
