Nephrology & Hypertension

The Division of Nephrology cares for patients with a diverse range of kidney diseases in an inpatient consult service, ward/transplant service and in outpatient clinics. It has gained recognition for its expertise in difficult-to manage and complicated hypertension cases. The division also has designated specialists in clinical hypertension. Over the past five years, Transplant Nephrology has expanded and developed a comprehensive program for long-term follow-up of kidney transplant patients.

Among its many services, the Division of Nephrology offers consultation, evaluation and treatment for patients with:

  • Acute and chronic renal disease
  • Hypertension, especially complex, complicated or secondary forms of the disease
  • Fluid and electrolytic disorders such as abnormalities in metabolism of salt and water, potassium, calcium, phosphorous and magnesium
  • Intoxications

The division also offers all forms of renal replacement therapy such as:

  • Hemodialysis
  • Chronic ambulatory peritoneal dialysis
  • Intermittent and continuous peritoneal dialysis
  • Home care

Special services that are offered include:

  • Renal biopsy
  • 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure recordings and monitoring
  • Multiple artificial kidney machines and peritoneal dialysis cycling devices
  • Kidney transplant care
  • Metabolic evaluation of kidney stone patients

Education

Educational activities in the division range from teaching medical students to providing advanced training for fellows. The Renal Fellowship Program has six fellowship positions and includes a comprehensive training program that covers all aspects of clinical nephrology and actively involves the fellows in research. The division’s faculty also provide core curriculum to residents and students, and participate in continuing medical education (CME) programs sponsored by the Stritch School of Medicine.
