Mayo Clinic in Minnesota offers up-to-date diagnosis and treatment options for adults and children who have polycystic kidney disease. Mayo's Minnesota location has one of the world's largest groups of practicing nephrologists (kidney specialists), including a research group devoted to the study of polycystic kidney disease.
Care of people with polycystic kidney disease is coordinated through the Inherited Renal Disease Clinic, which brings together kidney and liver specialists, medical geneticists, radiologists, urologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons, as well as liver and transplant surgeons. This team provides patients with a comprehensive medical evaluation and treatment plan. A federally funded PKD Center research program has also been established at Mayo Clinic.
Adults with polycystic kidney disease who require hospitalization are admitted to Rochester Methodist Hospital. Children who need hospitalization receive care at Mayo Eugenio Litta Children's Hospital.
