Living Donor Center
Getting patients the lifesaving transplants they need
Through its Living Donor Center, the Houston Methodist J.C. Walter Jr. Transplant Center is determined to help all patients whose lives depend on kidney and liver transplants.
Our doctors, specialists and staff have decades of experience and understand how the steps to transplant can be for patients facing organ failure, as well as for their donors. We recognize the complexity and uniqueness of each patient’s path, and we meticulously prepare everyone for transplant.
We are committed to the safety and health of all donors by thoroughly screening everyone to ensure they live a healthy life after donation.
Living donation: the ultimate gift
“Living donation is the ultimate gift of life — literally giving a piece of yourself in order to save another person’s life and prolong your time with that person… It is remarkable,” said A. Osama Gaber, MD, distinguished chair and director of the center.
