Kidney Donation

Kidney transplants are the most common organ transplant in the United States. Kidneys fail due to diseases such as 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/.
