Nephrology Services 
 
 
 
 
At Saint Louis University Hospital, SLUCare nephrology specialists offer a wide range of diagnostic and treatment services for patients with acute and chronic disorders of the kidney and urinary tract; fluid, electrolyte and acid base disorders; and hypertension. We also specialize in dialysis and kidney transplantation.  

Our services include inpatient and outpatient diagnostic evaluation, hemodialysis, continuous renal replacement therapies, peritoneal dialysis, renal transplantation evaluation, follow-up and support, renal biopsy, interventional nephrology and outpatient follow-up care.  

Our interventional nephrology program, which is involved in the maintenance of vascular access for patients on dialysis, has gained national prominence. This service provides diagnostic venography for problems with arterial venous access, angioplasty, stent placement, and thrombectomies, as required for the maintenance of adequate dialysis access. The interventional nephrology service also places temporary and semi-permanent tunneled dialysis access catheters and provides comprehensive management for complications of vascular access issues.
