Wayne Health’s Hypertension and Kidney Diseases Clinic consists of nephrology specialists who provide a full spectrum of care for patients with all types of kidney diseases and hypertensive conditions. Our doctors have particular expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of diabetic and hypertensive kidney disease, lupus nephritis, polycystic kidney disease, glomerular diseases and kidney stones.
We are also experts in treating disorders of fluid and electrolytes (i.e., disorders of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and acid-base). Wayne Health outpatient clinics provide comprehensive services for patients with chronic kidney disease and end-stage kidney disease. We offer the full spectrum of acute and chronic therapies, including in-center and home hemodialysis, acute hemodialysis and continuous renal replacement therapies, hemoperfusion and peritoneal dialysis. We also have a Kidney Transplant Clinic seeing patients for pre-transplant evaluations as well as follow up after kidney transplantation.
We have extensive experience in the treatment of acute kidney injury, including kidney failure associated with malignancy.
Wayne Health’s special kidney programs include:
Physicians and researchers at Wayne Health are also faculty members of the Wayne State University School of Medicine who conduct research and clinical studies. This makes the latest treatments and clinical trials available to you sooner than other health providers without a medical school affiliation.
Clinical trials in nephrology are ongoing in transplantation, chronic kidney disease, COVID-19 impact on the kidneys, and a Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC) Study.
