Overview - Nephrology and Hypertension at the Mayo Clinic

Full Text

 

 

Experts in kidney transplant at Mayo Clinic discuss an image.

 

Mayo Clinic's top-ranked team of kidney and hypertension specialists (nephrologists) diagnose and treat more than 30,000 adults and children each year, including those with serious, complex or rare conditions.

The Mayo Clinic Division of Nephrology and Hypertension is one of the largest and most respected kidney (renal) and high blood pressure (hypertension) practices in the world. It includes more than 60 subspecialized experts committed to improving people's lives by providing comprehensive, multidisciplinary medical and surgical care, including kidney transplant and living-donor kidney transplants.

 

The right care the first time

People come to Mayo Clinic for help with a wide range of conditions, including glomerulonephritis, polycystic kidney disease and hard-to-treat hypertension. Successful treatment starts with an accurate diagnosis. Mayo Clinic doctors take the time to get it right. In a recent study, 88 percent of people who came to Mayo Clinic for a second opinion received a new or refined diagnosis.

Mayo Clinic uses renal imaging and specialized tests that aren't offered at most medical centers in the United States. You may undergo several tests so that your doctors can identify exactly what's causing your signs and symptoms. Mayo Clinic's nephrologists work with radiologists who use innovative and advanced imaging technologies and tools, including 7-tesla MRI, magnetic resonance elastography, magnetic resonance angiography, contrast enhanced ultrasound and automated total kidney volume calculations for polycystic kidney disease (PKD).

 

Collaborative care, focused on you

Mayo Clinic kidney and high blood pressure specialists work as part of multidisciplinary teams of doctors to make sure you get exactly the care you need. These teams may include specialists in cardiovascular medicinecritical care medicineurologypathologyendocrinology, pharmacy, obstetrics and gynecology, or other areas as needed.

Having all this expertise in a single place, focused on you, means that you're not just getting one opinion. Your care is discussed among the team, your test results are available quickly, and appointment schedules are coordinated. What might take weeks or even months to accomplish elsewhere can typically be done in a matter of days at Mayo Clinic.

Nephrology services are also provided to children at the Children's Center on Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota. Nephrologists trained in treating children work with other pediatric specialists to diagnose and treat children and adolescents.

Mayo Clinic Health System clinics, hospitals and health care facilities serve more than 60 communities in Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. These sites provide Mayo Clinic kidney and hypertension care to their local communities.

Having a medical condition such as kidney failure can affect your whole life. An integral part of your care team will be health professionals trained in every aspect of your condition. If you have a chronic kidney condition or are undergoing hemodialysis, you may be helped by dialysis nurses, patient care technicians, renal dietitians, social workers and dialysis technical staff.

 

Applying the latest in research

Mayo Clinic nephrology and hypertension physician-scientists seek new knowledge to improve the diagnosis and treatment of people with renal disorders and hypertension. You may have an opportunity to be part of one of the clinic's many nephrology-related clinical trials.

Mayo Clinic is developing a renal care center of excellence in the United States, with Baxter International Inc., a global innovator in renal care. The center is being established at the Mayo Clinic Dialysis Center at the clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida. The Mayo Clinic Dialysis Center provides state-of-the-art dialysis services in a comfortable, homelike facility. The collaboration between the clinic and Baxter will also allow for the trial of potentially new, codeveloped products and services.
