Central Florida’s leader in care of kidney disorders
The Nephrology health care providers at USF Health are a leading resource in Central Florida. We provide comprehensive care of adults with renal disorders including kidney disease and types of hypertension. Hypertension, commonly referred to as high blood pressure damages blood vessels in the kidneys over a period of time. That's why it's important to have regular screenings and live a healthy lifestyle, which includes stress management, exercise, and balanced eating habits.
At USF Health, our care of diseases of the kidneys starts with early identification to therapeutic intervention to treatment of end-stage renal disease. Dialysis is provided as needed to sustain healthy kidney function and kidney transplantations are performed by our experienced healthcare providers.
Tampa General Hospital and USF Health work together as a multidisciplinary team, and take a multi-specialty approach to transplant surgery. We are an academic-affiliated kidney transplant program that builds upon the solid foundation laid by Tampa General Hospital’s kidney transplant team.
Nephrologists and hypertension specialists work closely with other specialists, including cardiologists, endocrinologists, pharmacists, nurses, educators and dietitians to deliver high-quality, cost-effective care to patients who suffer from problems involving the kidneys, uncontrolled hypertension or complex blood pressure issues.
