We offer complete care for kidney diseases so you can live a healthy and productive life. Our expert kidney doctors use advanced technology and approaches to successfully treat a wide range of kidney conditions, including:

  • Acute and chronic kidney disease
  • Critical care nephrology (kidney care)
  • Dialysis access
  • Electrolyte disorders, imbalances of calcium, magnesium, potassium and other electrolytes
  • Glomerulonephritis, inflammation of the part of the kidney that filters blood
  • Issues relating to transplants of kidneys and/or other organs
  • Kidney complications caused by cancer and its treatment
  • Kidney failure
  • Kidney stones
  • Renal hypertension (high blood pressure caused by kidney disease)
  • Vasculitis, inflammation of the blood vessels of the kidney

Some of the many diagnostic and treatment options we offer for kidney diseases include:

  • Hemodialysis, also known simply as dialysis, a treatment to filter waste and water from your blood
  • At-home hemodialysis, in which we help you manage your own dialysis therapy at home
  • Peritoneal dialysis, an alternative form of dialysis that uses the lining of your belly to filter the blood
  • Catheter placement for both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis
  • Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT), a form of dialysis in which the blood is filtered 24 hours a day
  • Thrombolysis and angioplasty, which are procedures to remove blood clots and other blockages from blood vessel access sites in dialysis
  • Kidney biopsies to help diagnose kidney disorders
  • Stent placement if your dialysis access becomes narrowed or blocked
  • Kidney imaging, including image-guided procedures
