Diagnosis and Treatment of Kidney Conditions

Nephrology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of kidney conditions. The kidneys are responsible for removing poisons from our blood. When our kidneys are not functioning properly, our blood must be filtered mechanically by way of dialysis. The nephrologists at MultiCare Deaconess Hospital place emphasis on restoring normal kidney health and function.

Deaconess Hospital offers acute dialysis for patients with kidney failure being treated for other diseases such as:

  • Chemotherapy for those who have cancer
  • Kidney removal by general surgery or using a scope
  • Lithotripsy to break up kidney stones
