Nephrology

The multidisciplinary team at Baylor Scott & White Health utilizes our electronic medical record (EMR) system to coordinate your patients’ kidney care.

Baylor Scott & White offers your patients with chronic kidney diseases access to personalized treatments across a continuum of care that includes nephrology as well as hemodialysis clinics throughout Central Texas.

In addition to intermittent hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis for patients with end-stage renal disease, we also have expertise in treating complicated hypertension and managing acid-base and electrolyte disorders.

Services

Some of our expert services include:

  • Inpatient and outpatient hemodialysis
  • Citrate anticoagulation for a no-heparin dialysis
  • Renal biopsy
  • Continuous arterio-venous hemofiltration (CAVH) for acute renal failure

For advanced kidney disease, Baylor Scott & White offers kidney transplantation at three locations in Central and North Texas.
