Kidney care

The Northwestern Medicine Nephrology and Hypertension Program provides diagnosis and treatment for disorders and diseases of the kidneys, as well as hypertension disorders.

Inside each kidney, tiny structures called nephrons filter blood to remove waste products and extra water. This then becomes urine, which is stored in your bladder until it is released.

Northwestern Medicine offers expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of kidney and hypertensive disorders, including diagnosis and management of electrolyte and acid-base problems.

Our medical staff will work with you to control symptoms that negatively affect your health and life while focusing on the treatment and support of your condition or disease.
