The kidney/nephrology specialists at UW Health provide a complete range of consultative, diagnostic and treatment services for patients with kidney diseases. The scope of care encompasses all stages of kidney disease, from earliest detectable changes in kidney function through end-stage renal disease. The divisions goal is to provide the highest quality care while helping patients manage their condition.
Not only do faculty provide care for patients, they also teach the next generation of nephrologists. The Division of Nephrology hosts a robust fellowship program along with two advanced fellowship programs in interventional and transplant nephrology. Faculty see patients with a wide range of conditions, including diabetes and high blood pressure, inherited disorders such as polycystic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease. They also help patients through every step of a kidney transplant.
The Division of Nephrology has an active research program and through research they are committed to finding new ways to treat kidney disease.
