Surgery in patients with diabetic nephropathy involves kidney and/or pancreatic transplantation.


Surgery in patients with diabetic nephropathy involves kidney and/or pancreatic transplantation. Kidney transplant is an alternative to dialysis in patients with ESRD. The choice of kidney and pancreas transplantation is usually reserved for patients with type I diabetes mellitus, as well as selected patients with type II diabetes mellitus.
