Make a Plan - Transplant Choice: Kidney Transplant

A kidney transplant is a surgery in which a healthy donor kidney is placed into your body.

  • A surgeon transplants one healthy kidney from a living or deceased donor
  • Not everyone is a candidate for transplant
  • After-transplant routine requires daily medicine for the rest of your life
  • Before you need dialysis, you can get on a kidney waiting list or find a living donor
  • Transplant is a treatment, not a cure
