Why Choose Kidney Disease and Cancer (Nephro-oncology) at Vanderbilt

  • Special focus on amyloidosis and multiple myeloma

    The Vanderbilt Amyloid Multi-specialty Practice (VAMP) includes doctors from 10 specialties to care for patients with amyloidosis and multiple myeloma. Testing and many appointments are coordinated so that you can see the specialists you need, often on the same day. The team will send one summary letter to your referring doctor.

  • Advanced treatment

    VAMP has provided hundreds of consults for rare diseases. This team has made kidney transplants possible for some high-risk patients in cases when it wasn’t available otherwise.

  • Recognized care

    The Vanderbilt Center for Kidney Disease is recognized as a leader in amyloidosis and myeloma care in the Southeast. Patients in the South can get expert care close to home, avoiding the need to travel long distances — which they had to do before our practice formed.

  • Team approach

    Patients with renal cell cancer receive the benefit of being cared for by both our nephrology (kidney) and urology (urinary system) departments. Both are among U.S. News and World Report’s top-ranked programs in the U.S. These specialties work together to provide you the best possible care, using the latest surgical techniques and cancer treatments.

  • Clinical trials
