Important facts about kidney disease



There is a constant shortage of donor organs in metropolitan areas such as New York City. Give the gift of life by becoming an organ donor.

In kidney transplants, the donors' remaining kidney strengthens to compensate for the kidney that he or she donated. Kidneys from a living donor have a better long-term survival than kidneys from a deceased donor.

Also, deceased kidney donation cannot meet the needs of all patients in this country who need a kidney transplant. The waiting time for a deceased kidney donation may be two to five years. Kidney donations from living donors have always been a better option. More recently, kidneys donated from unrelated living donors (such as a spouse or a friend) have been as successful as those from close relatives.
