Kidney Transplants


Kidney failure is fatal, but fortunately, kidney transplantation can be a successful treatment. On The Point, we talk about the process, what goes into matching donors with recipients, and some ways to shorten the wait list for organ donations. 

Guests in the studio are Dr. Anil Chandraker Medical Director of Kidney and Pancreas Transplantation at Brigham and Women's Hospital and the President of the American Society of Transplantation, and Hanu Singh, a kidney transplant recipient. Mindy Todd hosts.
