Kidney Care services in New Jersey

Kidney and bladder conditions are common medical issues in the United States. The kidneys perform various functions for the body, and there are several conditions that can interfere with these organs and cause complications.

What do the kidneys do?

Your kidneys are responsible for sorting waste products and balancing chemicals in the body. Every day, quarts of blood are filtered in the kidneys to remove urine and transfer it to the bladder. Chemicals and nutrients your body needs, such as sodium and potassium, are kept in the blood and balanced by the kidneys to keep the body functioning at optimal efficiency.

Kidneys require pressure to do their job, and it is partially responsible for regulating blood pressure. The kidney can send signals to the body to increase or lower blood pressure as needed. Kidneys are also responsible for the production of erythropoietin, a protein that creates red blood cells.

Complete Kidney Care

Our centers are equipped to diagnose and treat kidney pain, kidney stones, blood in the urine (hematuria), protein in the urine (proteinuria), kidney failure, urinary tract infections (UTI), kidney infections, hypertension, immune-mediated conditions affecting the kidneys (including lupus and Henoch-Schonlein Purpura HSP), and chronic renal insufficiency.

Our nephrologists use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to find out what’s causing a patient’s kidney complications. We then guide patients through the road to recovery with a customized treatment plan. For some patients, a full kidney transplant may be necessary, but we take the time to explore all of your options before resorting to open surgery.
