The Carlos and Marguerite Mason Transplant Center at Children's provides full pre- and post-transplant services for children who need a kidney transplant.
A kidney transplant provides your child with a healthy kidney from a donor. There are two main types of kidney transplants:
A deceased donor transplant provides your child with a kidney from a person who has recently died. To receive a deceased donor kidney, you child is placed on the UNOS list.
A living donor transplant is when a person volunteers to give your child one of his kidneys. The donor's remaining kidney works well enough for him to have a normal quality of life. Your child's new kidney takes over the work of two failed kidneys.
