Kidney Donation

Kidney transplants are the most common organ transplant in the United States and the most common organ given by living donors. Living and deceased donors give life through kidney donation. Kidneys fail due to diseases such as polycystic kidney disease, diabetes or high blood pressure (hypertension). A kidney transplant can eliminate the need for dialysis and is life-saving.

Kidney Paired Donation

Kidney paired donation (KPD) is a transplant option for candidates who have a living donor who is medically able, but cannot donate a kidney to their intended candidate because they are incompatible (i.e., poorly matched). Check at your transplant facility for the opportunity for a paired donation, if your living donor isn’t a match. Additional information including a brochure and KPD related videos can be found at https://unos.org/transplant/kidney-paired-donation/.
