About us

Nephrology is the branch of internal medicine devoted to the study, diagnosis, and treatment of kidney disease. The Division of Nephrology at the University of Washington is dedicated to providing excellent medical care for patients with hypertension, diabetic kidney disease, glomerulonephritis, acute and chronic renal failure, and for kidney transplantation through research and education.

Our stories

Dr. Henry Tenckhoff passed away this month at the age of 86. He has the rightful claim to be the “father of chronic peritoneal dialysis.”

The vision for the Center for Dialysis Innovation is that future dialysis therapy will be complication free and completely restorative of kidney health.

The inaugural division spotlight is on our Division of Nephrology, and coincides with the launch of their new website.
