Kidney Pancreas Recipients
Gary Fritz had been living with a Type 1 diabetes diagnosis for 20 years. Multiple daily injections and blood sugar tests interfered with his normal routines. Gary began falling asleep at work as a heavy equipment operator. His local physician in Littletown, PA referred him to the transplant team at UMMC where he was added to the transplant wait list. Within three months, Gary received a simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplant to restore his kidney function and cure him of diabetes forever. The Division of Transplantation at UMMC is one of only a handful of centers to perform simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplants for patients with Type 1 diabetes. Watch Gary's video »
