The Chronic Kidney Disease Program:   
Twenty million Americans have chronic kidney disease (CKD), and large populations are at increased risk of developing
CKD. Left untreated, CKD can progress to kidney failure, which necessitates renal replacement therapy (dialysis or kidney
transplantation) to prevent death. Early intervention is effective in preventing or delaying the progression of CKD and the
development of complications. Goals of our CKD Program:

Detect Renal disease early
Delay progression
Treat complications like anemia, bone disease, acid-base/Electrolytes abnormalities
Treat comorbid conditions like Diabetes, Hypertension, and Heart Disease
Early referral to Nephrologist
Plan ahead for transition to ESRD

End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Program:

Optimize the delivered dose of dialysis
Improve vascular access care
Ensure optimal management of complications of ESRD (i.e. anemia, bone disease)
Ensure optimal management of comorbid conditions
(i.e. diabetes, cardiovascular disease
Coordinate care among various caregivers
Reduce hospitalizations
Improve survival

The Kidney Stone disease Program:
Kidney stones are a common health problem. It is estimated that 12 percent of men and 5 percent of women will develop a symptomatic stone by age 70. Fortunately, treatment is available to effectively manage most stones and steps can be taken
to prevent their recurrence. The Renal Stone Risk Profile is a new 24 hours urine comprehensive test that can identify the
cause of your kidney stone disease. Our Physicians will order the test and analyze it and then discuss the results with you.
The main stay of the medical management of the kidney stone disease is diet modification and our dietitian will help you to
achieve that goal. Few medications are also available in certain situations for the treatment of the Kidney Stone Disease. Our
Physicians will be glad to discuss these options with you.

The Healthy Bone Program:
Osteoporosis is the most common skeletal disorder. It is characterized by a progressive decrease in bone density, causing
bones to become brittle, weakened, and easily fractured. Bone mass naturally declines beginning at about age 35. However,
women are particularly at risk for osteoporosis after their menopause due to accelerated bone loss that results from reduced
production of estrogen. Early diagnosis and determination of bone loss and fracture risk are important due to the availability
of treatments that may slow or even reverse osteoporosis.
