Organ & Tissue Donation

Charles de Lint, the award winning author wrote, “Every time you do a good deed you shine the light a little farther into the dark. And the thing is, when you're gone that light is going to keep shining on, pushing the shadows back.”

Many of us want to be remembered not only for the person we were, and who we loved, but for the good deeds we’ve done for others. And today, through organ and tissue donation, it’s possible to do very good things for someone in need. If you want to make a life-changing difference we suggest considering organ donation after death. 

Without doubt, there are many opportunities to give of oneself after death. According to the Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation, more than 114,000 people are waiting for organ transplants in the United States. Sadly, in 2011, a total of 6,669 patients died while waiting for organ transplants. On average, 18 people died each day because of the shortage of organ donations.

The Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation is not only at the core of organ transplantation, but also at the core of a growing phenomenon: tissue transplantation. Fast becoming a routine part of patient care in virtually every hospital and in many doctor's offices across the country, tissue transplantation could not occur without the kind and charitable donations of others.

“These tissue transplants often save limbs from being amputated,” shares the website The Gift of a Lifetime, and give sight to the blind. They also allow recipients to walk without pain, lift up a young child, or perform other routine activities that most people take for granted.”

If becoming an organ and tissue donor appeals to you, or to a loved one; please call us at 972-254-4242. We will be delighted to explore existing organ donation options, and will do our best to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have about organ and tissue donation.

The Donate Life Texas Registry is a database of individuals who have officially provided authorization to donate organs, tissues or eyes upon their deaths.  You may register as a donor on this website, at your local Department of Public Safety (DPS) office when you apply for or renew your driver’s license or identification card or  through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) when you renew your vehicle’s registration.

University of Texas Southwestern Transplant Services Center provides services to hospitals and physicians throughout Texas, the nation, and on occasion worldwide. It is a clinical and academic service center of UT Southwestern Medical Center which "completes the Circle of Care" from donation to transplantation by providing a full-service tissue bank which procures, processes, stores, and distributes tissue allografts.

One of the most generous gifts you can make is to donate your body for medical education and research. Human bodies are valuable not only for training new physicians but also for conducting medical research and helping specialists develop new techniques.

Today there is a greater need than ever for human bodies for medical education and research. Willed body programs, such as the one at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center™, help meet this need.
