Clinical Services at Rush Initial Evaluation

During your initial visit to the University Transplant Program at Rush, you will meet with a transplant surgeon, a nurse transplant coordinator and a social worker. They will assess the severity of your illness and any other medical problems you may have to determine if transplant is an appropriate option for you. They also will provide a great deal of information about transplant and will answer any questions you may have.

The following are some common questions people ask about pancreas transplant:

If I don't have a pancreas transplant, what are my treatment options?

  • What if I have a living kidney donor?
  • What are the risks and benefits of transplantation?
  • How many transplants are done at Rush each year?
  • How long will a transplant last?
  • When will I get on the waiting list? How long is the wait?
  • Do I need to do anything special while waiting for a transplant?
  • How many medicines will I have to take after a transplant? For how long will I have to take them?
  • What will my insurance cover and what will be my costs?
