Brief Answer:
It's possible

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your query.
I think I would be able to help you.

The fact remains that insulin pump has no real age bar. If she us otherwise fit, you can get it done.
As to where you can get it done, you first need to find an endocrinologist who can deal with it after implantation.

As for the implantation, I may be able to help you if you can tell me where you are located.

I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information helps you. Please feel free to contact us for more information. Best of luck. Dr Mittal.
