All For Donating Something Priceless

Approximately one-third of the 17,000 kidneys donated every year come from living donors. The rewards of living kidney donation are many, while the risks are few. The Henry Ford Transplant Institute is home to the largest liver transplant program in Michigan. With decades of experience, our highly skilled liver transplant team provides you with more options, better results and quick recovery to make donation as seamless as possible.

The Experience Donors Deserve

At the Center for Living Donation our team puts donors first. We prioritize your comfort and safety. In fact, we’re one of the few centers nationwide to use the latest and safest, robot-assisted minimally invasive procedures. This approach means patients recover faster with smaller incisions, reduced pain, less scaring and a lower risk of infection. At Henry Ford we have the best 1-year survival rate for transplanted livers in Michigan.

Five Decades of Dedication
Henry Ford performed Detroit’s first living-donor kidney transplant in 1968. Since then our team has performed more adult liver transplants and kidney transplants than any other center in Michigan. As one of the most integrated, comprehensive transplant programs in the country, we ensure specialties work together to create a unique, patient-focused care experience.
Better Technology Leads to More Transplants
Your kidney may not be a perfect match, but thanks to cutting-edge software Henry Ford’s specialists can take advantage of paired donation. We find the perfect recipient for your kidney, and we get the perfect kidney for your chosen recipient. Thanks to paired donation, hundreds have received life-saving transplants.
