Donors and Recipients
Tissue Allografts Save and Enhance Lives Every year around the world, doctors use more than a million allografts to help…
- Injured athletes run again.
- People burned by fire are mended and given hope.
- Men and women with back issues stand straight again and return to their lives.
Allografts come from tissue donors—this can be people who died in accidents or from sudden illnesses. A donor’s gift can help 50 people.
Every donor is carefully screened by medical professionals. With allografts second surgery is often not needed, so recovery and healing will be easier.
