Kidney transplant donor resources

The choice to donate your kidney is a big decision. However, it can save somebody's life. We offer a program specifically geared toward prospective donors.

Kidney transplant at Methodist Healthcare

A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure performed to restore proper kidney function when a kidney is no longer able to function on its own. A donor kidney is procured and replaces the failing kidney with a healthy one.
