Living donation is the best option for patients needing a kidney transplant. 

University of Maryland Medical Center is one of the few centers in the region offering the expertise and technology for minimally-invasive donor nephrectomy (removing a kidney through surgery). 

Currently, we offer two options for the living donor:

  • Single-Port Donor Nephrectomy, available since 2009
  • Robotic-Assisted Donor Nephrectomy, a more advanced approach

Find out how UMMC supports both donors and recipients through living kidney donation.

How You Can Help: Recipients with living donors get transplants faster and have better outcomes. Even if you cannot be the donor, you can play a valuable role by becoming a living donor transplant champion. Learn more about living donor champions.
