Nephrology at The Brooklyn Hospital Center covers the entire spectrum of diagnosis and treatment of kidney problems. Services are provided in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
Common Diseases and Disorders Treated
Outpatient consultations are provided by our nephrologists in a private office setting. We place a strong emphasis on treating patients with hypertension and diabetes at an early stage in order to avoid progression to kidney failure.
Our nephrologists' primary goal is to preserve remaining kidney function in order to avoid the need for dialysis in the future. Those patients who have kidney failure are treated in the Dialysis Center. In addition, we have a home peritoneal dialysis program.
The Brooklyn Hospital Center's dialysis program is in the top 15% of dialysis units in the country. Over 200 patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are treated here annually.
