Patients who do not meet the criteria for pancreas transplant consultation can be seen by any of the specialists at the Penn Transplant Institute for a second opinion or disease management. Transplant staff will help coordinate the referral. The Penn transplant team is always available to discuss the candidacy of any prospective transplant patient.
Communication with Referring Physicians
Communication with referring physicians is a top priority for the Penn transplant team. Referring physicians are called at the time of transplant and are updated on the patient's hospital course. Continuing communication regarding patient status is sent via letters at the time of follow up office visits. Team members are also available via cell phone or email to answer any questions or discuss a patient.
