Better Transplant Outcomes and Comprehensive Donor Protections through the National Kidney Registry

The NKR is finding better matches and achieving better transplant outcomes with the largest pool of living donors across 100 transplant centers in the United States. More donors to choose from = better matches = better outcomes.

Better Patient Outcomes

  • Better Matched Kidneys Last Longer
  • Kidneys Last Longer = Patients Live Longer
