The living kidney donation option

February 12, 2020

In honor of National Donor Day on Feb 14th, the latest episode Mayo Clinic Q&A takes a look at living donor kidney transplant. While 6,000 people chose living kidney donation in 2018, experts say the pool of potential donors is still untapped. Educating would-be donors and recipients about the advantages of living donation is key.


Dr. Mikel Prieto, a Mayo Clinic transplant surgeon, discusses the living kidney donation option.
