The health care activity of the Renal Nephrology and Transplant Service covers the whole spectrum of kidney disease and kidney replacement treatment options. From the functional and structural point of view it participates in the work of the following Units:

The Service is organized into the following sections:

  • Kidney Transplant
  • Dialysis
  • Therapeutic apheresis

Patient care is provided both in the outpatient setting (outpatient clinics, the Day Hospital or in the dialysis section) and in the hospital setting (in the nephrology room and in the Intermediate Care Unit). Nephrological care also has an important cross-cutting component, so the Service treats the renal complications of outpatients or those admitted to other services, both in conventional units and in Intensive Care Units.

  • Chronic kidney disease and its complications

  • Tubular-interstitial diseases of the kidney
