Ketogenic Diet Therapy

If you have been diagnosed with epilepsy, our physicians may utilize a ketogenic diet therapy to help control the number of seizures you experience, when traditional medical or surgical procedures prove unsuccessful.

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 X-ray

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

Knee Ligament Repair

The surgery to correct a torn knee ligament involves replacing the ligament with a piece of healthy tendon.

Knee Replacement Surgery

During knee replacement surgery, only the surface of the joint is removed; the arthritic ends of the bones are shaved off and replaced with new metal and plastic surfaces.
