Surgeons from Scotland to help pancreas transplants restart
from The Irish Times
Surgeons are to be flown in from Scotland to help restart the national pancreas transplantation program after a nine-month gap. Patients on the waiting list for a pancreas transplant have been told specialists from Edinburgh’s Royal Infirmary Hospital will transplant any organs that become available for suitable recipients between now and January. No pancreas transplants have been carried out this year, since the retirement of the surgeon who founded the program, Dr David Hickey, from Beaumont Hospital at the end of 2014.
