Deceased donation is the process of giving an organ or part of an organ, tissue and corneas at the time of a donor’s death for transplantation to another person. By registering to be a donor, you can give life to others. Unless under the age of 18, your family cannot override your decision.
Living donation offers another choice for transplant candidates and saves two lives – the life of the recipient and the patient behind him or her who moves up on the transplant waiting list. A living donation of a kidney or partial liver can save lives in a shorter period of waiting time, often less than a year.
Indiana University School of Medicine provides whole body donation services to those who wish to donate their body for the purpose of education through the Anatomical Education Program.
