Clinical Services at Rush Pancreas Transplant Program
Program Description

The Pancreas Transplant Program at Rush University Medical Center offers comprehensive evaluation and transplant services for adults and children with Type I diabetes. For patients whose conditions have not been helped by currently available medical therapies, a pancreas transplant, or a combined pancreas-kidney transplant, can be an effective treatment option.

Services for patients include a comprehensive system of support services for patients and families before and after transplant.

Clinical Team

The team of professionals who work together to meet the diverse needs of patients and their families, from pre-transplant through post-transplant recovery include:

  • Transplant surgeons
  • Endocrinologist
  • Nephrologist
  • Surgical fellows
  • Surgical residents
  • Clinical nurse coordinators
  • Nurse organ procurement coordinators
  • Transplant patient service liaison
  • Social worker

This team, led by Edward Hollinger, MD, PhD, coordinates the efforts of more than 100 other health care professionals at Rush who are involved in the care of each transplant patient.
