Living Donor OptionInnovative techniques developed over the last few years have allowed living donors to give the gift of life to loved ones, friends, and even complete strangers.
There is a great demand for organ donation in Connecticut and living organ donors can help close the gap by safely donating a kidney, portion of a kidney, or a portion of the liver. YNHTC uses minimally invasive, laparoscopic techniques to remove the organ or portion of the organ using small incisions that require less post-operative healing time. Most living organ donors can leave the hospital just two days after the procedure.
There are three easy ways you can register as a donor:
- Call Donate Life Connecticut at 203.387.1549.
- Visit Donate Life New England to register online if you are a resident of a New England state; or visit Donate Life America to find out about organ donation procedures in your state.
- Express your wish to become a donor when you receive or renew your driver's license at the DMV.
