We work collaboratively with a patient’s primary care physician and specialists to slow the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and prevent or manage complications such as hypertension, anemia, and bone disease. Additionally, our multidisciplinary team of professionals can assist you in arranging a wide array of supportive services and educations programs for patients in all stages of CKD. For patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), our nephrologists can prepare them for all renal replacement therapies: in-center or home hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, and kidney transplant.
Chronic Kidney Disease
Approximately 20 million people in U.S. have some level of kidney disease, and many of them are not aware. Since 1990 the number of Americans with kidney failure requiring dialysis or transplantation has more than doubled.
Kidney Transplant Services
Our transplant nephrologists have provided Medical Director Services to the Transplant Center since its inception in 1990. Our doctors provide the initial kidney transplant patient evaluation, donor, evaluation, and comprehensive care through the hospitalization, and complete follow-up care post transplant.
