Living kidney donation is performed laparoscopically with minimal scarring. Donors usually return to their normal lifestyle within 2-4 weeks post-transplant, with Renewal available to cover lost wages. Donors do not need to take lifelong medication, nor are they restricted with their diet following surgery.
