Living Donor Kidney Transplant
Living donor kidney transplant is an operation where a kidney is donated from someone who has volunteered to donate a kidney. These donors are often family members or close friends, but they can also come in the form of altruistic kidney donations.
Deceased Donor Transplant
A deceased donor kidney transplant is an operation where a kidney is donated from someone who had died and I transplanted into someone whose kidneys are no longer working.
Paired Kidney Exchange Transplant
A paired kidney exchange, also known as a kidney swap, occurs when a living kidney donor is incompatible with the recipient, so they exchange kidneys with another donor/recipient pair.
Simultaneous Kidney and Pancreas Transplant
A kidney and a pancreas are transplanted at the same time into one recipient.
Pancreas After Kidney Transplant
In this procedure, a person who has already received a kidney transplant receives a pancreas transplant from a different deceased donor.
