After Transplant

Life after Transplant: “Running the Race”

Enjoying life with the gift of a pancreas or kidney-pancreas transplant is an incredible privilege and comes with responsibility.  SKI transplant nephrologists will assist you along the way with continuing your journey.  Patients after pancreas transplants need post transplant continuity of care.  Medications are needed to prevent rejection of the transplant and help prevent infections.  Our transplant nephrologists are experts in managing these medications, called “immunosuppression” and management of potential complications that may arise.  We encourage all patients to continue to involve their primary care physicians along the way.
