Nephrology is the art and science of the care of the kidney. The skilled physicians and staff of Jefferson's Division of Nephrology in Philadelphia offer comprehensive care for chronic or acute renal disorders, kidney stones, diabetic kidney disease, renal failure and secondary and essential hypertension; complications due to pregnancy; and dialysis treatment or transplantation.
Inpatient dialysis treatment is provided in the state-of-the-art Acute Dialysis Unit for chronic hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis patients. Hemodialysis machines and dialysis software are continually updated in order to provide our patients with the best care.
