In brief: See below
Organ donation is performed to provide organs for those in need.
Organ transplantation is performed for organ failure in diseases of the heart, lung, kidneys, live, pancreas and small intestine. Newer composite tissue transplants (hand/arm and face transplants) are becoming more common as well.
