Enhancing Kidney Health

Your kidneys remove waste from your bloodstream and regulate your blood pressure. When problems keep your kidneys from working like they should, specialists at Virtua called nephrologists can provide the diagnosis and treatment you need.

Our board-certified nephrologists can handle adult kidney problems, as well as the special needs of children and adolescents with kidney disorders. Our experts are trained and equipped to manage:

  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Kidney injury
  • Pregnancy-related kidney problems
  • Kidney stones
  • High blood pressure
  • Congenital kidney abnormalities (which means kidney problems that occur at birth)

Services we can provide while diagnosing and treating your kidney condition include:

  • Biopsy
  • Renal ultrasound
  • Computerized tomography (CT) to provide detailed images of the inner structures of your kidneys
  • Kidney function monitoring
  • Dialysis to filter waste from your blood – both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis
  • Care following a kidney transplant

To learn how our specialists can treat your kidney condition, call
