Kidney Care

U.S. News & World Report has ranked UVA the No. 1 hospital in Virginia. Five of our specialties are among the top 50 in the U.S., including our kidney services. 

An estimated 20 to 40 million Americans have some form of kidney disease (also called renal disease), and the numbers are on the rise. Because it doesn’t show early warning signs, an estimated 10 percent of those with kidney disease don’t know they have it. Many find out only when their kidneys stop working and they need dialysis or a new kidney.
