6 Patients, 6 Donors Prepare for Rare Kidney Swap Chain
In a rare series of interlinked operations, six patients are getting kidney transplants from six donors at a San Francisco hospital. Dr. William Bry, a surgeon at California Pacific Medical Center, said the "kidney paired donations" are occurring thanks to a woman who started a chain of donations and a computer program that matches donors to recipients. People in the chain are not compatible with relatives or friends to whom they are willing to give kidneys. So, they donate to strangers they do match.
