Your path to a better life

Living Kidney Donation

A kidney from a living donor is an amazing gift of life. Living donor kidneys function better and longer than those from deceased donors and save years of waiting for a kidney. Family, spouses and friends can donate a kidney.

Laparoscopic removal of the donor kidney provides a quicker return to work and normal activities than other techniques. Dr. Potter has been performing laparoscopic donor ephrectomy procedures since 2001.
