Experts In Combined Kidney-Pancreas Transplant

Arlys Martinez had type 1 diabetes, which eventually led to kidney failure. She was on dialysis and needed a transplant, but she was ineligible for transplant at other centers. At UI Health, she was able to get a combined pancreas-kidney transplant via robotic surgery that cured her diabetes and helped her stop dialysis treatments.
