About Our Department
LSUís Department of Nephrology and Hypertension provides a
full range of specialized nephrological and hypertension consults and services
for patients with kidney disease and hypertension. Our services include inpatient and outpatient
consultations, nephrological intensive care, dialysis access care and declots,
inpatient and outpatient dialysis, CKD education, anemia management in kidney
disease, metabolic bone disease and management of kidney stones, evaluation and
treatment of resistant hypertension. Our
physicians are dedicated to providing state-of-the art, comprehensive services
to patients suffering from systemic conditions that affect the kidneys, fluid
and electrolyte disorders, and hypertension.
Despite major advances in healthcare, kidney disease and hypertension
are still responsible for one of the highest mortality rates in Louisiana.
Our dedicated LSU nephrologists collaborate with physicians
across the LSU Healthcare Network to form a multidisciplinary team with expert
knowledge of the interdependence of bodily systems with the kidneys. Patients can be seen in our nephrology and
hypertension outpatient clinics, or accepted directly for inpatient admission
in cases of severely compromised renal function.
As an academic medical center, we have the opportunity to
use the most recent medical breakthroughs to improve our patientsí kidney
health, conduct cutting edge research and offer unique treatments not found at
other hospitals in the region. LSU nephrologists offer in-depth consultation for congenital renal disorders and genetic counseling. Our
individually tailored nephrology care often also incorporates nutritional
counseling and medication management.
