Nephrology at St. Jude and St. Joseph Heritage Medical Group
At St. Jude and St. Joseph Heritage Medical Group, our nephrologists are
experts in diagnosing and treating diseases affecting the kidney. This
includes kidney stones, hypertension, kidney failure, kidney disease,
renal failure, and polycystic kidney disease, and the care of those requiring
renal replacement therapy, including dialysis and renal transplant patients.
Many diseases affecting the kidney are often systemic and not limited
to the organ itself, requiring special treatment. Our nephrologists are
able to direct special care for acquired conditions such as systemic vasculitides
(e.g. ANCA vasculitis) and autoimmune diseases (e.g., lupus), as well
as congenital or genetic conditions such as polycystic kidney disease.
