There are not enough kidneys to go around
Demand for kidney transplants is considerably higher than for any other organ. At the start of 2014, nearly 100,000 people in the United States were on the waiting list to have a kidney transplant. In recent years, only about 11,000 deceased-donor kidney transplants were performed annually in the United States. Each year another approximately 5,800 kidney transplants were made possible by living donors.
