The innovative islet cell transplant treatment for carefully selected patients who suffer from chronic pancreatitis pain starts with the complete removal of the pancreas and spleen.
After that, we transplant the patient's own islets, which include the cells that produce insulin and control the body's blood sugar levels.
We actively perform islet cell transplants in an effort to help your patients achieve across-the-board blood sugar control improvement.
We've found that these patients have achieved relief from much – and in some cases all – of the pain they experienced with chronic pancreatitis. The injection of islet cells also has helped many patients avoid the diagnosis of diabetes.
