"There are organs known as 'kidneys,' [...] One on either side of the lower back, just above the hips. A strike there causes considerable anguish, often so severe that the victim is unable to cry out."
Nom Anor to Shimrra Jamaane[src]

Kidneys were organs located near the lower back on Humans.[1] Although naturally having both a left and right kidney,[2] Humans were able to survive with only one kidney.[1] Kidneys could be transplanted[3] and even cloned if that was needed.[4]

Diffrent species can have a diffrent number of kidneys. For example members of the Yarkora species have four kidneys.

Hitting a person in the kidneys caused extreme—often disabling—pain for the victim.[1] Older Humans often suffered from Zithrom's syndrome, which resulted in shrunken kidneys, among other symptoms.[5]

Kidney stones could accumulate within the kidneys and be passed from the body.[6]

Yuuzhan Vong typically lacked kidneys.
