Live Donor Kidney Program

If you need to have a kidney transplant, an organ donation from a living donor may offer you the best chance to return to a healthy, active life.

A living donor - who may or may not be a blood relative - offers these advantages:

  • The donor is thoroughly tested to ensure the kidney is of excellent quality
  • Most kidneys from living donors function immediately after transplant
  • The kidney lasts longer
  • The kidney can be transplanted immediately
