Your kidneys play a very critical role to your overall health, and any damage or disease that affects them can have serious, long-term effects on your health, ranging from severe high blood pressure to kidney failure.
At Lagoon Hospitals, our Nephrologists have earned a reputation for providing care that is both evidence-based and innovative. Working with you, they find the right care plan fit for your diagnosis and lifestyle.
Our nephrologists work closely with other specialists to manage uncontrolled high blood pressure caused by medical problems such as diabetes, as well as a type of high blood pressure (called renal hypertension) caused by narrowed arteries in the kidneys.
We help patients with maintaining healthy blood pressure, maintaining the right balance in electrolytes (chemical mix in fluids), maintaining the right balance of fluids in the body, dialysis (treatment for kidney failure) and kidney transplant.
Kidney Disorders We Treat
We treat diseases of the kidney and are trained in the diagnosis and management of kidney disease, such as:
- Acute Kidney Failure, which is also known as acute kidney injury, is a serious condition that occurs when, over a period of time, your kidneys suddenly begin to shut down.
- Chronic Kidney Failure occurs when your kidneys gradually lose function and begin to cause long-term problems with multiple side effects.
- Kidney Stones Removal. Kidney stones are hard, solid masses made up of minerals and other substances found in your body. These masses range in size, shape, and texture, and can cause pain, bleeding and other symptoms if they grow large and get stuck in your urinary tract.
- High Blood Pressure (hypertension that is resistant to medications). Hypertension, more commonly known as high blood pressure, can damage the blood vessels in your kidneys and affect their ability to work properly.
