Simultaneous Pancreas and Kidney Transplantation (SPK)
Simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplantation (SPK) at MUSC is the preferred treatment for chronic renal failure and the life-threatening complications of Type I diabetes.

Since the early 1990s when MUSC performed South Carolin's first SPK transplant, hundreds of patients have benefited from our expertise in this complex procedure.
