Kidney Problems

The West Virginia University Nephrology Section accepts referral of patients who have a wide range of kidney-related problems, including:

  • acute and chronic kidney disease
  • non-diabetic kidney disease
  • electrolyte disorders
  • acid-base disorders
  • cystic kidney diseases
  • kidney stones
  • diabetic nephropathy (diabetic kidney disease)
  • end stage kidney failure (dependent on dialysis)
  • hypertension (high blood pressure)

WVU Hospitals’ kidney doctors host more than 10,000 patient visits yearly. Approximately half of these visits occur at outreach sites located around the state.

Services

Outpatient services we provide include:

  • in-center hemodialysis, including nocturnal in-center hemodialysis
  • home dialysis (hemodialysis and peritoneal hemodialysis)

Inpatient services we provide include:

  • continuous renal replacement therapy
  • kidney biopsy
  • acid-base disorders
  • kidney stones
  • chronic kidney disease
  • evaluation and management of secondary and resistant hypertension
  • kidney replacement therapy education and guidance

Information and Referrals

We welcome physician inquiries.

Outreach Clinics

Many patients come to the Physician Office Center in Morgantown, andt our outreach clinics located across the state.

The goal of our off site clinics is to reduce the long distances our patients must travel to receive medical care. By moving our nephrology services to various areas of the state, we can reach increasing numbers of West Virginians who otherwise may not seek out kidney disease treatment. Currently, nearly half of our 10,000 annual outpatient visits occur at one of our 10 outreach sites.
