Live donor kidney transplants are the best treatment for many people with end-stage kidney disease.
Live donor kidney transplants have high success rates.
About 19 out of 20 kidneys transplanted from a live or deceased donor will be working well after 1 year. More than 10 out of 20 of all kidneys transplanted from a live or deceased donor will still be working well after 20 years.
Most people have a longer, better life with a kidney transplant than with dialysis.
