Record 30,000 organ transplants performed in US last year
U.S. organ transplants surpassed the 30,000 milestone in 2015 because Americans are increasingly willing to donate their organs, health officials said. Doctors performed a record 30,973 transplants of kidneys, livers and other organs last year, 5 percent more than in 2014, according to the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN), a wing of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that tracks such medical donations.
