Penn has pioneered many treatments and programs in kidney medicine including the only glomerular disease clinic in the region.
At Penn Kidney Medicine, our patients benefit from individualized treatment plans, multiple treatment options and compassionate care. Our specialists work with experts across multiple medical disciplines in order to improve patient health and well-being.
Penn's Renal-Electrolyte and Hypertension Division is one of the most experienced and technologically advanced programs of its kind in the nation. We are leaders in the field of nephrology, a branch of medicine dedicated to caring for patients with all types of kidney disorders, high blood pressure (hypertension), and abnormalities leading to imbalances in body fluids and electrolytes. The terms nephrology, renal and kidney disease, are all used interchangeably to describe disorders of the kidney and associated conditions. At Penn Kidney Medicine, we treat the full spectrum of kidney diseases.
Faculty members that comprise the Renal-Electrolyte and Hypertension Division are internationally prominent leaders who provide innovative clinical care, perform ground-breaking research, and train the next generation of nephrology clinicians and researchers.
