Kidney Disorders We Treat
Kidney disease can require long-term care, which makes choosing the right physician a critical component to the success of your ongoing treatment. Whether it's time to see a doctor about a hereditary or genetic kidney disorder, possible kidney stones, an electrolyte disorder, glomerulonephritis or proteinuria, or to continue your care for chronic kidney disease or end stage renal disease, the University of Chicago Medicine can help.
Our goal is to closely manage your kidney disease and help you avoid kidney failure and the need for dialysis or a transplant. For those patients whose kidneys no longer function properly, we offer a robust dialysis program — including at-home, nighttime, hemo and peritoneal dialysis options. Importantly, kidney transplants are performed and managed by some of the most experienced surgeons and transplant nephrologists in the state.
Our doctors have the diverse training and experience necessary to diagnose, manage or treat even the most complex kidney disorders, including:
Alport Syndrome is a rare genetic disease that is caused by a gene mutation. It can lead to kidney damage and eventual kidney failure. It also affects the healthy tissue in your eyes and ears. Symptoms include blood and/or protein in the urine, high blood pressure and swelling.
