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.
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:
- Cytoscopy (diagnostic tool)
- with Transplant Services
- Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy for kidney stones
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:
- In-center and home hemodialysis
- In-center and home peritoneal dialysis
- Continuous renal replacement therapy
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.
