Our pediatric specialists have years of experience in managing pancreatic disease in children. They work together to address each child’s unique physiological, nutritional and psychosocial needs before, during and after TPIAT.
The multidisciplinary team includes pediatric gastroenterologists, surgeons, pain management specialists and endocrinologists. They see the patient and family in the outpatient clinic, and meet frequently with one another to discuss the care plan. Their individual perspectives help establish a balanced picture of how the patient is doing and how to proceed. Patients receive additional support throughout their course of treatment from nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, genetic counselors and diabetes educators.
In addition, our team works closely with colleagues at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, who were among the first in the country to perform TPIAT in adolescents and adults.
