Questions for your kidney transplant team
There are two main types of kidney transplant, either from a deceased donor (someone who has died) or a living donor (a friend or family member who donates one of their kidneys). If you have a potential living donor, we offer several options for getting a transplant. There are options even if you and your potential donor are not a match. A few of the options are explained in detail in the resources below.
