Altruistic Kidney Donation and Paired Exchange
About one in every three donors does not match their intended recipient. In the past, that would mean the patient would have to wait for several years on dialysis until a deceased donor became available. Our living donor program offers the exciting, innovative option of donor exchange. We can facilitate a high quality living donor transplant by exchanging live kidneys between other incompatible pairs.
It is extraordinary to offer a kidney to someone you love, and perhaps even more extraordinary giving a kidney to someone you do not know. That's exactly what one selfless donor recently did here when Riverside Community Hospital Transplant Center started the largest living kidney chain in the world!
