Nephrology

University of Maryland physicians within the Division of Nephrology have expertise in all facets of kidney disease affecting adults and children, including management of acute and chronic kidney disease, dialysis management, genetic kidney disease, glomerulonephritis, complicated hypertension management and electrolyte and acid base disorders. 

Additionally, we manage patients with end-stage renal disease, including both hemo and peritoneal dialysis.

Specialized, Multidisciplinary Care

Our experts in kidney disease, dialysis and kidney surgery work closely together to manage your care, whether you require transplant, dialysis or other treatment. Physicians, nurses and support staff offer a multidisciplinary approach, ensuring patients receive personalized care tailored to their specific health needs. 

Patients requiring kidney disease treatment have access to:

  • Surgeons with specialized expertise in kidney surgery, including dialysis access

  • Specialized transplant nephrologists (kidney specialists) who manage patients’ kidney failure before transplantation

  • Nurse coordinators, trained specifically in transplant care, who will be your point of contact throughout your care at University of Maryland, and after your transplant

  • A dedicated dialysis access clinic to provide personalized dialysis treatment and recommendations

  • World-renowned transplant immunologists (physicians and researchers who specialize in the immune system) developing new ways to reduce the risk of organ rejection 

  • Social workers, pharmacists and nutritionists to help you and your family understand the care you need before and after transplant

Our physicians are involved in a large, multi-organ transplant program between the University of Maryland School of Medicine, University of Maryland Medical Center and the Baltimore VA Medical Center. 

Research

University of Maryland physicians are dedicated to discovering new therapeutic strategies for treating kidney disease. Our nephrologists work closely with other UM experts in physiology, transplantation and radiation biology to focus on several aspects of renal biology, including cystic kidney diseases, microvascular function, transplant immunology and renal radiation injury. The Division of Nephrology operates several research centers around Maryland.
