Diagnosis and treatments
We specialize in diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting your kidneys and develop a personalized treatment plan that's right for you.
In addition to management of your kidney disease or injury, specialized treatments we provide include:
We provide secondary hypertension evaluation and management, treatment for renal vascular hypertension — when kidney artery narrows and leads to high blood pressure — and when patients have difficulty controlling their high blood pressure.
In close collaboration with the Transplant Center at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, we offer local pretransplant evaluation by a nephrologist who is an active member of the Mayo Clinic Posttransplant Committee. Local evaluation aids in smooth transition of care from pretransplant chronic kidney disease to posttransplant state. Once the kidney and pancreas transplant is complete, patients follow up locally. All long-term transplant care also is offered locally.
Outpatient dialysis services
We offer several options for dialysis to patients with end-stage kidney diseases and acute kidney injury. This includes home peritoneal dialysis and in-center hemodialysis. Mayo Clinic Dialysis, located across the road from our hospital and clinic, is a 24-chair facility providing the highest-quality, in-center hemodialysis three days a week. Call the dialysis unit from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 715-232-7272 for information or if you have questions.
