There is a new procedure called kidney swapping that allows those in need of a kidney donation to take a proactive approach to finding a donor.

How It Works: Kidney Swapping allows patients who need a kidney to take a proactive approach to find a suitable donor. Often those waiting for a kidney transplant have friends or family who are willing and able to make a kidney donation, but have tissue or blood characteristics that are
incompatible and would cause the transplant to be unsuccessful. For instance, a person may need a donor with Type A blood and have a potential donor who has Type B blood. Kidney Swap allows people with healthy, willing, yet incompatible donors to meet others who are in the same dilemma and essentially swap kidneys.
