How It Works: Pancreas & Kidney Transplant Surgery Treatment

Transplant recipients are experiencing an improved quality of life. But to ensure a successful transplant, our teams closely monitor kidney and pancreas transplant patients for an extended period of time afterward.

A pancreas or kidney transplant patient’s hospital stay can require anywhere from seven to fourteen days before release. Post surgery, patients will be monitored closely in the intensive care unit (ICU) for several days. As their condition improves, patients are then moved to a regular hospital room for the remainder of their stay where they will remain under close observation and begin physical therapy.

After leaving the hospital, patients will need to begin taking a prescribed medication to prevent their body’s rejection of the new organ. They will also need to attend multiple weekly checkups to ensure the success of the procedure. In these checkups, doctors will perform tests to track the conditions of the new kidney and pancreas, and the success of the prescribed medication, as well as the overall recovery of the patient.

As a patient’s new organs adjusts to their body and their overall health returns, physicians will gradually allow patients to return to their day-to-day routines while monitoring the intake of prescribes medications.
