Nephrology

Expert care for kidney-related conditions.

If you have kidney-related medical issues, require dialysis, or have had a kidney transplant, our nephrologists at Memorial Hospital and our affiliated dialysis center can provide crucial medical treatment.

Healthy kidneys remove extra water and wastes, help control blood pressure, keep body chemicals in balance, keep bones strong, help your body create red blood cells, and help children grow normally. Chronic kidney disease occurs when the kidneys do not work at full capacity.

Our nephrologists work with patients to manage kidney disease. They may diagnose and treat:

  • High blood pressure
  • Acute and chronic renal failure
  • Blood and protein in the urine
  • Urinary tract infections and kidney infections
  • Fluid, electrolyte, and acid-based disorders
  • Polycystic kidney disease (a heredity condition)
  • Kidney transplant patients
  • Dialysis patients

It is important to limit sodium and the amount of processed foods in your diet if you have been diagnosed with kidney disease. Memorial Hospital's dietitians can also provide nutrition counseling to support your health.

Our partner, DaVita Dialysis in Marysville, is the leading provider of kidney care in the United States, delivering outpatient care to patients with kidney failure and end stage renal disease.

For patients in need of dialysis during hospital stays for other conditions, Memorial also offers inpatient dialysis services. These patients will no longer need to be transferred to receive treatment during hospitalization –you can stay close to home and receive reliable, renal services with Memorial.
