Nephrotic Syndrome

If you or someone you love is experiencing the symptoms associated with nephrotic syndrome, such as high blood pressure, swelling in the feet and hands and around the eyes or susceptibility to infections, turn to the experts in Jefferson's Department of Nephrology.

Since nephrotic syndrome is related to kidney disease, Jefferson nephrologists will give a thorough evaluation to help diagnose possible damage done to your kidneys and recommend a personalized treatment plan based on the extent of the damage. This may include treatment such as dialysis or, in the instance of kidney failure, a kidney transplant. Our medical team will guide you through all the treatment options to determine what course of treatment is best for you.

You will benefit from our multidisciplinary approach by having access to various experts who will guide you and your family from evaluation through postoperative recovery. We also provide long-term follow-up care through clinic visits and monitored laboratory studies.
