- Expertise and experience. The large number of kidney specialists (nephrologists) at Mayo Clinic allows doctors to subspecialize in specific aspects of kidney medicine. A number of Mayo Clinic nephrologists specialize in lupus and care for people from all over the world who have the disease, including those with lupus nephritis.
- Teamwork approach. Lupus can affect almost any part of the body, and people with lupus can have very different symptoms. In Mayo's multidisciplinary practice, your doctor can easily tap into the expertise of other Mayo specialists — including doctors who specialize in kidney disease if you have lupus nephritis. You'll have a treatment plan tailored for your needs to improve your quality of life.
- New ideas. Mayo researchers conduct studies to better understand lupus and to test novel therapies for lupus nephritis through the Mayo Nephrology Collaborative Group. You may have the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial.
- Coordinated care. Mayo doctors can work closely with your local doctor to coordinate treatment and follow-up care.
