Pancreas transplants are not typically performed in children under the age of 18. Of the 719 SPK and pancreas transplants alone performed in the US in 2015, only 42 were performed in children, primarily within the context of multivisceral transplantation and in ages 1-5. Historically, three centers have performed most of the pancreas transplants in children: Jackson Memorial Hospital, Indian University Health, and University of Nebraska Medical Center.  In 2015:
