Ask the Expert: Increasing organ transplants through paired organ exchanges

In an effort to alleviate the current organ shortage, the Intermountain Healthcare Transplant Program at Intermountain Medical Center has joined a national registry that helps match organ donors and recipients across the nation, but in a different way.The National Kidney Registry is a unique nationwide organ donor exchange program that facilitates paired exchanges, a process in which an organ donor donates their kidney to a recipient other than their loved one in exchange for a compatible kidney for their loved one.This program can facilitate living donor transplants among those patients that are hard to match and may help in many instances to find a better match than conventional living donor transplants.The Intermountain Healthcare Transplant Program at Intermountain Medical Center is the only organ transplant center in Utah to be a part of this national registry. Since joining the registry four months ago, the Intermountain transplant program is already seeing positive results, including its first paired kidney donation exchange
