The division of kidney diseases & hypertension has a long tradition of being at the forefront of innovative research and translating the research to patient care for the past 40 years. We participated in Modification of Diet in Renal Disease study and other innovative studies that revolutionized dialysis therapy. Following on this tradition, we are one of the four institutions in the United States that have been selected to explore novel and innovative therapies in patients with kidney disease. Empowered by the knowledge that comes from research and a painstakingly built infrastructure, we bring state-of-the-art services to our patients. As a tertiary care center, we provide a wide array of services and offer second opinions regarding a variety of diseases to those who seek it.
