Tests & Treatments

  • Kidney Dialysis
    If you have been diagnosed with end-stage renal disease, are recovering from a kidney transplant or experiencing liver failure, you will receive expert care from our multidisciplinary team of nephrologists, nurses, dieticians and social workers.

  • Kidney Transplant
    Kidney transplants are performed when your kidney failure is so advanced that it cannot be reversed with dialysis.

  • Kidney Ureter & Bladder Xray
    A kidney, ureter and bladder X-ray is performed to diagnose the cause of abdominal pain, such as masses, perforations or obstructions.

  • Nephrectomy
    If you are diagnosed with a tumor of the kidney or another condition that prevents the kidney from functioning properly, a nephrectomy may be required.

  • Nuclear Medicine Scan
    A nuclear medicine scan is a test that produces pictures of organs and areas of the body that cannot be seen well with standard X-rays.

  • Pancreas Transplant
    If you have Type 1 diabetes and are experiencing major complications from this disease, you may be a candidate for a pancreas transplant.

  • PleurX Drainage System
    Drain fluid from your abdomen or chest at home and on your own schedule — so you can manage fluid buildup before it becomes too uncomfortable.
