What is Living Donation

The donor registry does not pertain to living donation, but it is another incredible way you can help save the life of someone waiting for an organ transplant. Through living donation, a living person can donate a kidney or part of the liver, lung, intestine or pancreas to another person in need of a transplant.

There are many factors to look at when considering living donation. Things such as blood type and overall health are factors when considering becoming a living donor. Each potential living donor must go through a full medical evaluation that includes lab tests, a physical examination, and a psychosocial examination. The decision about whether to accept the living donor is then made by the health care team at the transplant center.

Living donation is facilitated directly through transplant centers. For more information please contact one of the transplant centers in our area.
