Today, patients seeking to reverse diabetes have a choice of pancreas transplants, islet cell transplants, and even stem cell transplants.

Our Approach

M Health Fairview has one of the oldest and most successful transplant programs in the world. We have a legacy of innovation in several areas: living organ donation and transplant outcomes research and education of transplant surgeons. We have more than 50 years of experience in the clinical care of over 14,500 organ and cell transplant recipients of heart, lung, kidney, liver, pancreas, islet, or intestine transplants. We have cared for nearly 5,400 living organ donors.

Because our physicians from different specialty areas work together closely, we are highly skilled at treating patients who have medical problems with more than one organ, such as kidney and liver disease. We’ve been consistently ranked as a top provider by national and local publications.
