Transplants of kidneys, heart, pancreas, liver, cornea, bone marrow, bone and skin are no longer experimental surgeries. These procedures are widely accepted forms of medical therapy and are highly successful. However, the number of people waiting for transplants is far greater than the number of people who donate organs. As a result, thousands of adults and children die waiting for their gift of life. MedStar Georgetown University Hospital encourages everyone to sign an organ donor card and to discuss that decision with family members. Discussing and planning for organ and tissue donation while you are in good health can offer comfort and direction for your family if they are faced with the decision. For more information about organ and tissue donation, please call the Washington Regional Transplant Consortium at 703-641-0100.
