At Vanderbilt, our kidney experts offer compassionate care for people who have kidney disease resulting from the failure of other organs, such as the heart and liver. We also care for those who have kidney disease and cancer, or whose kidneys fail after transplants of other organs.
We tailor your treatment plan to meet your unique needs and health goals. We help you navigate your treatment options to ensure that you receive the best possible care.
We work with experts in heart, liver and lung failure and any other specialists necessary, depending on your condition. Together we can quickly adjust your treatment if you need different medication, for example, or if your condition changes.
Our doctors not only apply the latest knowledge to your care, but also pioneer innovative treatments. A team at Vanderbilt and the University of California at San Francisco is developing an implantable artificial kidney, aiming to eliminate the need for dialysis or kidney transplant.
A second opinion can help you make the best decisions. We review your medical history, diagnostic tests, any previous treatments and your personal preferences to provide you with an informed opinion.
