Division of Nephrology

The Division of Nephrology manages the entire spectrum of renal diseases, including hypertension, glomerulonephritis, pre-end stage renal failure, end-stage renal failure, including hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, and post-transplant care. In addition, we specialize in the treatment of diseases of the kidney and high blood pressure (hypertension).

All of our physicians are board-certified and experienced in onconephrology, which encompasses the broad spectrum of kidney disorders that can arise in patients with cancer. Beyond cancers of the kidney, cancers can have renal complications, and anti-cancer therapies, including chemotherapy, targeted anti-cancer agents and immunotherapy, can have adverse renal effects, leading to fluid, electrolyte and acid-base disorders, as well as acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease. Moreover, renal impairment can alter the excretion and metabolism of anticancer agents, necessitating dose adjustment.

We offer a full consultative service to evaluate patients with acute and chronic kidney disease, fluid and electrolyte disorders, hypertension and kidney stone disease. In addition, we offer local outpatient dialysis in both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.
