Show Notes

Comprehensive, relevant and insightful conversations about health and medicine happen here… on MedStar Health Doc Talk. 
Who is eligible to be a living donor? What are kidney swaps and exchanges? And can someone be a living donor even if they don't have a specific recipient in mind? Dr. Jennifer Verbesey specializes in kidney/pancreas transplantation for adults and children, and live donor nephrectomies. Dr. Verbesey is director, Living Donor Kidney Transplant at the MedStar Georgetown Transplant Institute, and surgical director, Pediatric Kidney Transplant at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.
