Kidney care at Touro

Nephrology is all about kidney care and treatment. While the causes and symptoms of kidney issues can be complicated, we don’t think your care should be. That’s why Touro’s team of nephrologists and experts use the power of Touro’s network to diagnose and treat kidney conditions across all stages, creating a customized care plan that works for you.

Kidney health and conditions

The kidneys are part of the urinary system, also known as the renal system or urinary tract. Your kidneys keep you healthy by filtering waste and excess water from the blood, maintaining electrolyte levels, and releasing hormones that manage blood pressure. When kidney issues arise, Touro’s nephrologists are here to treat conditions such as:

  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Kidney stones (nephrolithiasis)
  • Polycystic kidney disease
  • Glomerulonephritis
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Congenital disease

Treating your kidneys

Our nephrology specialists are on the leading edge of kidney care, using an integrated approach that tackles the causes of kidney conditions, treats their symptoms, and gets you on the path to healing. We’ll work with you to develop a treatment plan that might include:

  • Drugs and medications
  • Dietary and lifestyle management
  • Hemodialysis
  • Peritoneal dialysis
  • Transplant surgery
