University nephrologists have experience treating thousands of people with routine and complicated nephrology conditions including chronic kidney disease, kidney failure, diabetic kidney disease and hypertension disorders.
We provide testing and expert analysis to diagnose kidney diseases. We also provide testing to determine if you are a candidate for kidney transplant and the ongoing post-transplant care you need to maintain the health of your transplant.
The right care in the right place. That’s what University provides – inpatient, outpatient, dialysis centers and home (peritoneal dialysis). We offer highly specialized dialysis and transplant care as well as top-notch general nephrology care. We apply our three decades of experience to meet your kidney treatment needs.
Chronic Kidney Disease Education
University offers chronic kidney disease education about diet, medication, self-care and ways to prevent progression of your disease. This service is provided by a nurse educator in our Renal Clinic, part of University’s Texas Diabetes Institute (TDI). You can choose from two convenient TDI San Antonio locations or the Medical Arts & Research Center (MARC).
We care about and care for our transplant patients forever. Our team members form deep, caring relationships with our transplant families. We’re in constant communication to help ensure long-term success of your kidney transplant.
When you’re on the transplant wait list, we provide guidance about health, nutrition and medications. For pediatric patients on the wait list, we provide families with resources to help manage your child’s daily activities, such as school and play.
We also work closely with your referring and primary care providers to co-manage your care and health before and after transplant.
