Donate Life

Today in the United States, there are more people waiting for liver transplants than there are organs available. The University of Kansas Health System's liver transplant program currently uses only organs from deceased donors.

The donor

We use standard-criteria donors for liver transplant. These are individuals who have been declared brain dead, though their hearts still function.

Become a donor

To learn more about organ donation and to become a donor, visit the Midwest Transplant Network, Donate Life America or Gift of Life.

We offer a variety of appointment types. Learn more or call 913-588-1227 to schedule now.
