Nephrology

What we do

The Department of Nephrology & Hypertension(Internal Medicine of Kidney Diseases) was established in 1993 as a part of the Kidney Center (Department of Nephrology, Department of Urology and Dialysis Center.) and changed the name from Nephrology to Nephrology & Hypertension in April, 2006.
Eight physicians, including certified attending nephrologists of Japanese Society of Nephrology and Japanese Society of Dialysis Therapy, work in our department, which is a certified institution by those medical societies. Our kidney center provides medical service to patients with kidney diseases from all over the Boso Peninsula or even crossing prefectural lines. From hospitals and clinics in this extensive area, many patients with kidney diseases or on dialysis are referred to our kidney center for advanced medical examinations, treatments and surgeries. We currently provide for care 300 patients on chronic dialysis and also perform 500 sessions of various blood purification therapies for acute diseases a year.
