The patient care services provided by the division of Nephrology at Challa cover all aspects of our clinical discipline including preventive nephrology, acute kidney injury, glomerulonephritis, vasculitis, electrolyte and acid-base disorders, hypertension, genetic kidney diseases, renal complications of pregnancy, kidney stone disease, chronic kidney disease (CKD), kidney transplantation, hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and renal osteodystrophy. We provide primary care to a large group of patients with end–stage renal disease (ESRD) treated with hemodialysis and we have a very substantial peritoneal dialysis program.
Challa nephrologists provide a complete range of consultative, diagnostic and treatment services for patients with kidney diseases. The scope of care encompasses all stages of kidney disease, from earliest detectable changes in kidney function through end-stage kidney disease, as well as people with high blood pressure, kidney stones, and other kidney-related problems.
