Much of the focus of transplantation research is on the transplant recipient and their outcomes. At the Living Donor Kidney Center, we believe that it is just as important to address the needs and outcomes of the living donors who so generously give of themselves. Therefore, we have dedicated ourselves to understanding the short- and long-term impact of donation on the donor. In addition, we are dedicated to advancing the science of living donation and the techniques used for our donors.

Our research started out by retrospectively reviewing the outcomes experienced by donors since the inception of our program. Our program then performed a prospective clinical trial comparing traditional laparoscopic donor nephrectomy to the newer single site donor nephrectomy.
