Pancreas transplantation is for people who suffer from chronic diabetes and also have renal failure. It is aimed to 'cure' diabetes and in the long run it will protect the transplanted kidney from being affected by diabetes and even reverse neuropathy and prolong their life.
Small bowel transplantation is for people with intestinal failure form either surgical cause or medical cause. This patient population, if not treated appropriately treated will develop liver and or kidney failure. They will need combination of liver, small intestine and kidney transplantation (multi-visceral transplantation). We have a successful on-going cadaver organ transplantation program which will make these types of complex operations possible. More over we have the doctors and the technology available to optimize their care in all the aspects.
