When people reach the end of the useful life of one or both of their kidneys through disease, the option beyond dialysis--a mechanical medical cleaning procedure that substitutes for the work of the kidneys--is typically transplantation. Because people have two kidneys, a living donor may provide a kidney for a medically compatible person. While once considered experimental and dangerous, since the first successful kidney transplant in a human in 1954, the procedure has become a viable treatment option.

Mayo Clinic

The Mayo Clinic states that its surgeons perform 450 kidney transplants each year. The Mayo Clinic has treatment locations in Minnesota, Florida and Arizona. Along with providing immunosuppression therapy for kidney recipients, which is required in all transplants to prevent the person’s body from rejecting the organ as a foreign material, the Mayo Clinic assists children and adults with transplants from living donors as well as from deceased ones.
