Along with donating the kidney of Lalu Prasad Yadav's daughter, here are some Bollywood stars who have pledged to donate their organs

What is organ donation?

Organ donation is the process of surgically removing an organ or tissue from one person (the organ donor) and placing it in another person (the recipient). Transplantation is necessary because the recipient's organ has failed or has been damaged by disease or injury.


What is a living kidney donor transplant?

A living-donor kidney transplant occurs when a kidney is removed from a living donor and implanted in a person whose kidneys no longer work properly. Only one donated kidney is needed to replace two failed kidneys, which makes a living-donor kidney transplant an alternative to a deceased-donor kidney transplant.

Complications of kidney transplant

There are many complications of a kidney transplant. These can lead to pain, blood clots, incorrect response to anesthesia, hernia, re-hospitalization, testicular swelling, and even death.
