Despite major advances in medicine, kidney disease continues to increase, and has reached epidemic proportions worldwide. The Comprehensive Kidney Program at the University of Michigan Health System practices and teaches optimal care for patients with kidney diseases at all stages, and is committed to clinical research aimed at both better treatment and prevention of kidney-related health issues.
Many of the recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease require close collaboration between kidney specialists with diverse areas of expertise. In recognition of these advances, we have brought together a team of specialists to evaluate and treat patients with known or suspected kidney disease in a timely and coordinated manner. Our patients also have access to clinical research opportunities and cutting-edge treatments.
