Conditions We Treat

Our Nephrologists are tightly focused on delivering the best possible medical care and consideration to all our patients in a personal, caring and compassionate atmosphere. Below are some of the common conditions treated by our expert team:

Chronic Renal Kidney Disease
This is a common disease that means your kidneys are slowing their ability to filter waste products from your blood. Chronic kidney disease can worsen over time. While there is no cure, you can take steps to preserve function for as long as possible.

Chronic Renal Failure
Chronic renal failure is a condition involving a decrease in the kidney’s ability to filter waste and fluid from the blood. It is chronic, meaning that the condition develops over a long period of time, and is not reversible. It typically is caused by certain medical conditions that put a strain on the kidneys over time, including diabetes, high blood pressure, hypertension, and long-term inflammation of the kidneys.

Chronic Urinary Tract Infections
The chronic inflammation that can accompany chronic kidney disease put a person at higher risk of infections. Urinary tract infections is one of the most common types of community-acquired infection.

Congenital Kidney Disorders
Cryoglobulinemia (protein in the blood)

Kidney Injury
Acute kidney injury is a sudden episode of kidney failure or damage that happens within a few hours or days. It can cause a build-up of waste products in the blood and makes it difficult to maintain optimal balance of fluid in the body.

Kidney Infection
A kidney infection is a painful illness caused by bacteria or viruses in your kidneys. Symptoms can include a fever, trouble peeing, lower back pain or pain when you pee. Kidney infections should be treated right away.

Lupus Nephritis
Lupus nephritis is an autoimmune disease that causes your immune system to attack your healthy cells. When the immune system attacks your kidneys, it is called lupus nephritis.

Polycystic Kidney Disease
This is an inherited disorder that results in clusters of cysts that develop within your kidneys, causing your kidneys to enlarge and lose function. Cysts are noncancerous round sacs containing fluid. Having many cysts or large cysts can damage your kidney.

Preeclampsia (during pregnancy)
This is a serious condition that can occur after the 20th week of pregnancy or after giving birth. It can cause high blood pressure, and it causes organs to not work optimally.

Protein in Urine
Protein in urine can have causes that aren’t due to underlying disease.

Renal Artery Stenosis (narrowing of the arteries)
Renal artery stenosis, otherwise known as kidney stenosis, is a blockage of the kidney artery, which may lead to kidney failure and hypertension. In most cases, the cause of renal artery stenosis is atherosclerosis, the build-up of cholesterol deposits in the arteries.

Renal Dialysis
Dialysis is a treatment to clean your blood when your kidneys are not able to. It helps your body remove waste and extra fluids in your blood.

Renal Function
This is a term that is used to describe how well the kidneys are functioning, including removal of waste and extra water from the blood and keeping sodium, potassium, and calcium balanced in the body.

Renal Infarction
Renal infarction is a compromise of arterial blood supply to the kidney resulting in loss of renal function.

Renal Mass
A renal mass is a tumor or abnormal growth in the kidney.
