Make Appointments & Get Care


The Nephrology Division at the University of Rochester Medical Center provides kidney care to patients at Strong Memorial Hospital, Highland Hospital, FF Thompson Hospital, Geneva General Hospital, and St. James Hospital.

This includes a compressive kidney transplant program and support for our pancreas, heart, and liver transplant patients.

Many patients see us for in-center hemodialysis, home dialysis, and peritoneal dialysis. Our providers also work closely with the Advanced Heart Failure Program at URMC, providing nephrology care to patients with ventricular assist devices and total artificial heart transplantation.

We also conduct research, keeping us on the cutting edge of new cures. Our principal investigators are funded by leading sources, including the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, private foundations and pharmaceutical companies.

UR Medicine's Approach

We take a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to all aspects of Nephrology, bringing other teams and their expertise together as needed so you get the best care. We work closely with:

  • Transplant surgeons to assist in the care of kidney transplant patients, both before and after surgery
  • Urologists in the Kidney Stone Treatment Center for the management of kidney stones
  • Endocrinologists for the management of diabetic nephropathy and adrenal causes of hypertension
  • Cardiologists who care for patients with cardiorenal syndrome
  • Rheumatologists for co-management of lupus nephritis and other autoimmune disorders of the kidney, including glomerulonephritis and vasculitis
