Adult Pancreas Transplant

The National Pancreas Transplant Programme has been approved as a mainstream service in 2021, with National University Hospital (NUH) appointed as the dedicated surgery site for pancreas transplants. The pancreas transplant service started as a pilot programme in 2012 in collaboration with Singapore General Hospital (SGH)’s transplant unit, under the Ministry of Health’s Health Services Development Programme. The first Simultaneous Pancreas – Kidney (SPK) transplant in Singapore was performed by National University Centre for Organ Transplantation (NUCOT) in 2012 and we have performed 5 SPK transplants to date. We are the only centre in South East Asia performing pancreas transplants.

In the long term, the success rate for a pancreas transplant is over 75% after 5 years.
