Live Donor Kidney Transplant

A living donor may be someone in your immediate or extended family, or it may be your spouse or a close friend. In some cases, a living donor may even be a stranger who wishes to donate a kidney to someone in need of a transplant.

One advantage of receiving a kidney from a living donor is that this type of kidney has been shown to last longer than a kidney from a deceased donor. Another advantage is that the operation can be planned to suit your schedule, since it is not necessary to wait for a kidney to become available
from a deceased donor. Some research shows that an early kidney transplant, with little or no time spent on dialysis, can lead to better long-term health.

A disadvantage of living donation is that a healthy person must undergo surgery to remove a healthy kidney. The donor will need some recovery time before returning to work and other activities. However, recent advances in surgical techniques for kidney removal allow for very small incisions (often called minimally invasive surgery). This may offer shorter hospital stays and recovery time for donors. Living donors usually experience positive feelings about their courageous gift.

What is a kidney transplant?

When a person’s kidneys fail, kidney transplant and dialysis are the two types of treatment available to replace many of the functions of healthy kidneys. A kidney transplant is to receive a new kidney from another person. Many people feel that a successful kidney transplant offers a better quality
of life than dialysis. This is because a transplant allows for considerably
greater freedom (no need to spend time on dialysis), increased energy
levels, and a less restricted diet. In addition, studies have shown that
people who receive kidney transplants live longer than those who remain
on dialysis.
