Video: Adriana's Hyperinsulinism Story

Adriana had focal hyperinsulinism (HI), and a special PET scan pioneered at CHOP was instrumental in helping Surgeon-in-Chief N. Scott Adzick find the part of her pancreas that was making too much insulin. Dr. Adzick, who has performed more pancreatectomies than any other surgeon — more than 500 — removed only that part, and Adriana was cured of the disease.
