Living Organ Donation

Guest: Dr. Tim Taber

Patients needing transplants have two options--receiving an organ from a deceased donor or a living donor. With a current organ shortage and high wait-list times, there is a push for more living donation. In this podcast, Dr. Tim Taber, Medical Director of the Kidney and Transplant program at Indiana University Health, discusses the issue of organ shortage and the advantages of living donation, which include longer organ life and a shorter wait time for patients needing transplants. Current and proposed organ allocation methods, such as paired donation, are also discussed.
