HOW TO BECOME AN ORGAN DONOR
Most people who are healthy can be a donor. You will need to undergo an evaluation, which includes lab work, radiologic tests and an office visit. Once cleared, you schedule a convenient time for you and the recipient. The kidney is removed laparoscopically, which leads to a shorter hospital stay and faster return to normal activities. Take the first step.
