You’ll learn about living kidney donation in this section of LDO. Information is presented on the following five pages:

Keep in mind that policies and procedures vary from transplant team to transplant team. While we’ve attempted to capture “typical” policies and procedures, you should confirm the actual process with your transplant team.
