Chronic kidney disease (CKD) management and prevention
We provide close monitoring of your kidney disease as well as management of the associated issues such as anemia and hyperparathyroidism. We also work closely with you to help educate you on nutrition goals, blood pressure goals and overall prevention of advanced CKD.
Our nutritionist is available to help guide patients with their specific nutritional needs. Following strict diet guidelines is crucial for patients with CKD as well as patients with diabetes, kidney stones and transplants. We also have a nutritionist available for our patients on dialysis, whether in-center or home therapies are being used.
End Stage Renal Disease
Should your CKD progress despite following the recommendations and adjustments made by your doctors, we will help in the transition and preparation for dialysis. This includes TOPS education classes where you and your family learn about different types of dialysis as well as access referrals and management.
We follow our patients at multiple different dialysis units in the area once they are started on in-center dialysis. We will see our patients at least once a month to ensure they are doing well. We will continue to adjust medications and educate on nutrition to provide the best care for them.
We offer a full peritoneal dialysis program. Peritoneal dialysis allows patients to perform dialysis at home. This gives flexibility and allows for patients to be in control of their own health. Patients will be in close contact on a weekly basis with our great peritoneal dialysis nurses and will see their physician once a month.
We offer a full home hemodialysis program. Similar to peritoneal dialysis it offers more freedom, flexibility and general well being when compared to in-center hemodialysis.
Care of kidney transplant recipients
All of our physicians are active and committed with the care of kidney transplant patients. We work in close conjunction with the patient’s transplant center in this management.
