Kidney Transplant

A transplant is when you get a kidney from another person. The person who gives you the kidney is called a donor. The donor’s blood type and tissue must match yours. The new kidney is put into your body through surgery and is usually placed in the lower part of your belly. Your old kidney may or may not be taken out during surgery. The new kidney does the work that your old kidneys did when they were working.
