The act of physically removing an organ or tissue from one person (the organ donor) and transplanting it into another person is known as organ donation ( the recipient ). The recipient’s organ has failed or has been harmed by disease or injury, necessitating transplantation.
One of the greatest achievements in contemporary medicine is organ transplantation. Unfortunately, there are many more persons who need to donate their organs than there are donors. Over 107,380 men, women, and children are in need of life-saving organ transplants in the United States, where 21 people perish each day while waiting for an organ.
