We are also among the busiest kidney-pancreas centers in the world and the only adult transplant center in central Ohio. Our first combined kidney-pancreas transplant was performed in 1988.
Leading-edge treatments: We are one of the few sites in North America approved to process pancreatic islet cells for transplantation that may cure type 1 diabetes.
