Clinics for Kidney Treatment
This clinic involves evaluation and treatment of patients with inflammation of the kidney. Untreated, glomerulonephritis can lead to complete kidney failure. This means that early and accurate diagnosis and management of the disease is crucial to preserve kidney function.
We work in collaboration with specialists in rheumatology and provide comprehensive, multi-disciplinary care. We also conduct clinical trials that involve treatment of kidney diseases due to multiple inflammatory causes, including lupus, focal segmental glomerulonephritis, membranous glomerulonephritis, rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, and others.
This clinic is located at the Huntsman Cancer Institute and involves a collaborative team that includes the nephrology, hematology, and oncology divisions to evaluate and treat patients with kidney problems associated with:
- kidney tumors,
- chemotherapy, and
- other related problems.
