Chronic kidney disease care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic care team

At Mayo Clinic, nephrologists and hypertension specialists work closely with other specialists, including cardiologists, endocrinologists, pharmacists, nurses, educators and dietitians to deliver high-quality, cost-effective care to people who have chronic kidney disease. This means that you're not getting just one opinion — you benefit from the knowledge and experience of each specialist.

Close collaboration enables the team to have your test results available quickly and to coordinate scheduling your appointments. Evaluation and treatment that might take months elsewhere can typically be done in only a matter of days at Mayo Clinic.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

Mayo Clinic patients have access to the latest imaging and diagnostic tools available, and there's a long history of Mayo Clinic scientists developing cutting-edge technologies for patient care. With state-of-the-art research and lab facilities, Mayo Clinic experts are constantly seeking new medical knowledge for the care of people with chronic kidney disease.
