Our Genetic Kidney Diseases Care team provides medical care and counseling to adults, children, and families with genetic kidney diseases. We offer consultations with a kidney specialist and genetic counselor with expertise in genetic kidney diseases for diagnosis, genetic testing and counseling. We emphasize patient and family education. We provide recommendations for treatment and follow-up as well as guidance to referring nephrologists and other providers. Patients will be given the opportunity to participate in clinical research if available for their condition.
We can assist with a wide variety of genetic kidney conditions. If a specific genetic disease is suspected based on family history or classic presenting features, targeted genetic testing can be facilitated. We also provide consultation when a genetic cause of kidney disease is suspected, but not clear.
