Kidney Transplant

Kidney Transplant

At OU Health, your kidney transplant organ comes from a deceased or living donor, often a family member or other suitable match. The process of transplanting two kidneys at the same time requires a deceased donor. Your surgeon may leave a nonfunctioning kidney in place while transplanting the new one in your lower front abdomen. Your OU Health kidney transplantation and care team includes specialists in nephrology, intensive care, immunology and infectious disease working together for your optimal recovery.
