As your nephrologist in Broward County
We Specialize in:
Whether you have an electrolyte abnormality such as a low sodium or a high potassium or a glomerulonephritis or a need to prevent recurrent kidney stones or acute kidney or chronic kidney disease.
As your expert nephrologist in Broward county, FL, the physicians of South Florida Nephrology Associates are ready to diagnose and treat you as your kidney specialist.
A permanently elevated blood pressure will eventually cause damage to all arterial blood vessels and not only to those of the kidney.
Whether you have an occasionally elevation in blood pressure that can be treated with a low sodium diet and exercise or hypertension that is refractory to many medications, the physicians of South Florida Nephrology Associates, your nephrologist in Broward, are ready to help you.
The physicians of South Florida Nephrology Associates strive to delay the progression of chronic kidney disease.
As your nephrologist in Broward, we do our best to optimize the medication and lifestyle regimens of patients with chronic kidney disease so that they can avoid renal replacement therapy (dialysis).
In some cases, however, dialysis will become necessary. At this point the physicians will refer patients for transplantation and offer either hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis, either incenter or at home.
The dialysis prescription will be optimized for each patient with frequent follow up visits with their nephrologist.
In the event that you may have suffered acute kidney injury requiring dialysis, we do our best to optimize recovery of kidney function.
