Altruistic Living Donor

What is the Altruistic Living Donor Program?

The Altruistic Living Donor Program matches altruistic donors with recipients awaiting transplantation. There are two types of altruistic donation; directed and non-directed. For directed altruistic donation, the potential donor may have some knowledge of the recipient for example through church, synagogue or mutual acquaintance. With non-directed altruistic donation, a donor wishes to donate a kidney to a person on the waiting list who he or she does not know.

We consider altruistic living donation to be a very unique and special situation since there are no obvious benefits to the potential donor. The transplant team is available to fully evaluate all potential living donors, whether living-related, emotionally-related or altruistic. The Renal and Pancreas Transplant Division is experienced in the evaluation and management of all living donors.

  • I never considered going to any hospital but Saint Barnabas, and the high level of care and attention I received assured me I made the right decision.
