Kidneys

UT Southwestern Medical Center is widely recognized as one of the nation’s leading clinical centers for general nephrology and the treatment of chronic kidney disease. We are also internationally renowned in the clinical diagnosis, management, and research of kidney stone disease.

Our Nephrology Division treats the entire spectrum of kidney disease, including:

  • Acute renal failure
  • Diabetic nephropathy
  • Glomerulonephritis
  • Hematuria (blood in the urine)
  • Kidney disease
  • Nephrotic syndrome
  • Renal vascular disease

Our offices coordinate inpatient and outpatient consultation services for chronic kidney disease patients, as well as maintenance renal replacement therapy by dialysis or transplantation.

Our kidney service offers advanced medications and other therapies for treatment, including minimally invasive procedures, traditional surgery, and kidney transplants. In addition, we use extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy for the treatment of kidney stones, and specialized diagnostic procedures to determine the cause of hematuria.
