Renal or ‘Nephrology’ is a medical specialty concerned with the kidneys. The kidneys are vital organs that filter the bloodstream, clearing waste products and controlling the body’s level of water and chemicals.
Chronic kidney disease is a condition where a person has evidence of kidney damage or reduced kidney function. People with end-stage kidney disease require dialysis or a kidney transplant to stay alive.
Logan Hospital's renal unit provides all aspects of care for people with kidney conditions except for renal transplantation.
Our services include:
We have a multidisciplinary team comprising doctors, nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, social workers and psychologists. Our surgical service assists with creation of dialysis access.
