Comprehensive Pancreatobiliary Disorder and Autologous Islet Transplantation Clinic
We are excited to announce the establishment of the UNMC Comprehensive Pancreatobiliary Disorder and Autologous Islet Transplantation Clinic. This multidisciplinary clinic was developed to provide a full spectrum of diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for a wide variety of non-malignant pancreatic and biliary diseases, in particular acute and chronic pancreatitis. The clinic is composed of physicians from the Departments of Gastroenterology, Surgery and Endocrinology, as well as nutritionists and social workers. Patients are discussed at a team meeting to develop a personalized plan of care for each.
In addition, we are very excited to be able to offer autologous islet transplantation for patients deemed to be candidates for total pancreatectomy for benign indications, most commonly intractable pain related to pancreatitis.
The clinic is located in the Multi-Organ Transplant Center (MOTC) located on the second floor of the Lied Transplant Center. Please contact Christina Sailors, Nurse Coordinator, at the numbers below for further information or to place a referral. You may also use our on-line referral.
We look forward to the opportunity to work with you and your patients.
