Pancreas/ ISLET Cell Transplant

The Pancreas/ISLET Transplant Program at AIG Hospitals provides innovative treatment, transplant and management options for patients with type 1 diabetes, including recent kidney transplant recipients.

AIG Hospitals is first in the country providing pancreas and islet cell transplantation services in India.
For patients who require both a kidney and a pancreas or islet transplant, we offer convenient access to both procedures, as well as the ease and reassurance of receiving comprehensive, innovative care at one centre.

Patients with type 1 diabetes who are not candidates for whole organ pancreas transplantation may be eligible to undergo islet transplantation.

AIG Hospitals is also initiating an islet cell autotransplant program for patients with chronic pancreatitis, in which patients requiring surgical removal of their pancreas have the insulin-producing islets isolated from the removed pancreas and replaced in the patients liver to prevent the development of diabetes.
