According to the USRDS Annual Data Report of 2016, less than 18,000 kidney transplants were performed in 2014. UCLA performed 142 living donor transplants in 2016. The active waiting list is 2.8 times larger than the supply of donor kidneys, which presents a continuing challenge. We encourage healthy individuals to become organ donors, and help patients in need of a transplant.
If you are interested in becoming an organ donor, please fill out the online health history by visiting www.UCLAKidneyDonor.org or calling 1(866) 672-5333 to initiate the transplant evaluation process.
