Kidney Center Services & Treatment

An estimated 20 to 40 million Americans have some form of chronic kidney disease.

Patients with chronic kidney disease due to causes such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension or polycystic kidney disease benefit from the comprehensive, convenient care at UVA’s Kidney Center.

UVA has one of the largest academic hemodialysis facilities in the country.

Complete Kidney Care Services

At UVA, we provide care for all stages of kidney disease. We work to prevent the progression of the disease in patients and provide services like:

UVA’s doctors also work closely with other specialists to treat or prevent complications from kidney disease.

Your Kidney Treatment Options

If your kidneys aren’t working properly, you may require treatment options that replace kidney function by cleansing the body of toxins and other harmful substances and balancing body fluids.

We offer numerous advanced therapy options, including:

At UVA, you'll find one of the largest nocturnal hemodialysis programs in the country (and one of the few in the nation), providing a convenient and effective dialysis option that’s done while the patient sleeps (and often at home). That means fewer hospital visits during work or school hours for dialysis treatments.

Kidney Center Convenience

All Kidney Center services – doctors, social workers, ultrasound, clinics and clinical trials – are located on the same floor of the West Complex at the UVA.

Satellite locations also make it easier to get treatment. We operate a kidney clinic and dialysis center at Augusta Medical Center as well as dialysis centers at Zion Crossroads, Orange, Stanley, Amherst, Lynchburg and Altavista.
