Organ Transplant Overview

In the United States alone, there are more than 120,000 people on organ transplant waiting lists. Unfortunately, there simply aren't enough donated organs, which results in an average of 18 people dying each day while waiting for transplants.

What Are Organ Donations and Organ Transplants?

The first successful adult human kidney transplant was performed in 1954. Over the past 50 years, many successful organ transplants have occurred. Transplants now involve every major organ, various tissues and cells (such as kidneys, hearts, lungs, livers and bone marrow). Survival is steadily increasing, and successful transplants now lead to an improved quality of life. Medical technology continues to improve, and transplantation has become a life-saving procedure for many with congenital or chronic conditions or diseases. Research studies continue to focus on preventing graft rejection and the development of new anti-rejection drugs and therapies that are less toxic and more effective. Scientists also continue to learn about the body's immune system, which contributes to a further understanding of transplantation and other immunologic diseases and conditions.

Organ Transplant Facts and Statistics

In the United States alone, there are more than 120,000 people on organ transplant waiting lists. Unfortunately, there simply aren't enough donated organs, which results in an average of 18 people dying each day while waiting for transplants.

Organ Donation Process

More than 120,000 people are on organ transplant waiting lists in the United States. But a shortage of donated organs means that an average of 18 people die each day while waiting for transplants.

You have the power to donate life. Learn more and register to become a donor on the Texas state donor registry.

Becoming a Living Organ Donor

Organ donations from living donors can have many benefits for the recipient. If you are considering becoming a living donor, the first step is to complete our confidential online health history questionnaire. A living donor coordinator will then review your information. If you’re eligible, the coordinator will contact you to review your health history questionnaire and answer any questions you may have. Then we’ll work with you to get financial approval from your insurance for testing.

If approved, you’ll have a thorough medical and social evaluation to determine that you’re healthy and that there is nothing that puts you at additional risks for future health problems related to the surgery, anesthesia and donation. We’ll present the evaluation results to the Transplant Team to determine your suitability for donation. If you’re approved, we’ll schedule the transplant.​​

Living donor liver transplants and living donor kidney transplants are available at Baylor Scott & White.
