Location of Kidneys in Human Body

The kidneys are two bean shaped organs, placed behind the stomach on either side of the vertebral column.

Each kidney is capable of sustaining life independently. In other words, a person can lead a normal life even with one kidney.

Kidneys are a part of the urinary system which also consists of the ureters, urinary bladder and the urethra.
