The section of Nephrology at Baylor College of Medicine contributes to the current developments and research about diseases related to high blood pressure and the kidney. This focus enables the faculty to provide the best individualized diagnosis and treatment of our patients. Our expert, professional and courteous medical care is based on the latest evidence from laboratory and clinical research, providing patients with a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic options.
Our individual and group research projects and our commitment to physician training and patient care keep us abreast of new developments in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that cause kidney disease (e.g., diabetes) or are complications of kidney disease (e.g., hypertension). We start with a scientific approach to the diagnosis and treatment of disease, and continually update our activities to provide modern methods of care throughout a patent's illness and recovery.
We especially emphasize preventive methods to reduce or eliminate the complications of hypertension and kidney diseases. As a patient, your diagnosis and treatment will be planned and tailored for your unique needs. You will receive easy-to-understand explanations about your condition and the underlying mechanisms that cause damage to the kidney or other organs. Our goal is to help you make choices about the best course of action for your care.
Medicine is both a science and an art, and we welcome involvement of members of a patient's family. The objective is to create a support system for the patient's care, to provide an appropriate, effective and, above all, acceptable treatment for the patient. Family members' involvement can promote optimal control, understanding and support of the patient's medical needs.
