Pancreas transplant for diabetes type 1
Pancreas transplant is a procedure assigned to patients with type 1 diabetes. After the surgery they return to normal life without insulin and sugar level monitoring.
International patients are recommended to receive a transplant in India, as it is one of the few countries worldwide where this procedure is permitted. Internationally accredited specialists perform pancreas transplant with up to 93% success rate. The pancreas transplant cost here is one of the lowest in the world.

Pancreas transplant at Gleneagles Global Hospitals is performed by a team of professional transplantologists in the Transplantology Department. Physicians utilize state-of-the-art devices and the most recent surgeon techniques to ensure the operation success.
Transplantologists have over 15 years of expertise and hundreds of performed transplants. The success rate of pancreas transplants is estimated to be up to 92%. The operation lasts from 4 to 6 hours. Patient’s own pancreas is not removed, rather the new organ is placed in the empty space in the abdominal area of the patient. Pancreas starts functioning within few hours after the operation. Right after the procedure, a recipient starts taking immunosuppressants to prevent transplanted organ rejection.
The approximate duration of stay in the Hospital totals to 2-3 months: 2-4 weeks to complete paperwork before the surgery, around 10 days in the ward to recover from the operation and 1-2 months of rehabilitation period.
