1 doctor agrees

In brief: At transplant center

Being a living donor is an amazing gift that saves a life.
Donation happens at a transplant center - find 1 through the UNOS website. Theres an extensive evaluation that includes assessment of the medical, surgical and psychologic suitability of the person considering donation. Education about the risks is a major part of the process. It is intentionally not rapid, so careful consideration occurs.
