Jefferson University Hospitals

Tests & Treatments

  • Antegrade Pyelogram
    In order to assess the kidneys or ureters prior to surgery or to determine if there is a blockage, Jefferson physicians use this procedure.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Ultrasound
    An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body, including the heart, blood vessels, kidneys and liver.
