What makes Baylor Scott & White different for kidney patients?
Living kidney donor transplant
Patients with living donor kidney transplants liver longer, recover more quickly and have a better quality of life. The fastest way to receive a kidney transplant is for a family member, friend, co-worker, or altruistic donor to step forward. These donors don’t have to be related or have the same blood type or be of the same race or gender. They simply need to be healthy and willing. Most donors are between the ages of 18 and 65. (Donors older than 65 are considered on a case-by basis.)

Recipient-donor match opportunities
Our large pool of patients and donors provide increased options for living kidney transplant candidates. We assess potential living kidney donors across all of the Baylor Scott & White transplant locations. This allows us to check compatibility with not only a specific recipient, but with multiple living donor transplant candidates. Our goal in doing this is to get the right living donor to the right recipient.
We utilize the newest technology and advanced robotic techniques that make surgery and recovery easier and faster for our donors and recipients.
