In this video, Dr. Tim Taber—Transplant Nephrologist and Director of the IU Health Transplant Kidney and Pancreas Programs—discusses how the odds for kidney transplants can be improved. With 1,000 people awaiting a kidney and 300 available per year, using living and deceased kidney donors is critical (living donor kidneys provide greater longevity). Also important is the expertise of the transplant team. Those at IU Health are solely dedicated to transplantation, allowing them to deal with any kidney- and medication-related issues.
