Kidney Donation

Types of Transplants: Deceased vs. Living Donors

Transplant candidates have two options for obtaining a new kidney: deceased or living donors. Most transplanted kidneys in the US come from deceased donors. However, there are currently many more people on the waiting list than there are available deceased donors. A solution to this shortage is living donation. Many transplant candidates may have willing living donors and not even know it.
