Could you donate an organ while you are still alive?


Humans can live with one kidney, and can survive even after donating part of their liver or lung. This is a bit different than being an organ donar, where they take your organs after you are dead. Could you donate your organs while living, and sacrifice some quality of life, but potentially save the life of another?
