Transplant Care

    Overview

    Kidney and pancreas transplantation are two common types of transplant surgery. Transplant surgery is required when a patient's organs become too damaged from either disease or injury to function properly. Rehabilitation and recovery from organ transplant requires careful monitoring of the patient's progress.
