Treatments to Prevent & Eliminate Kidney Failure Risks

Your kidneys perform the important role of getting rid of waste from your blood. Kidney disease prevents the kidneys from working properly and can eventually result in kidney failure. If your kidneys fail, you will need regular dialysis services until you can receive a kidney transplant.

St. Croix Health’s nephrologists focus on treatments that prevent and slow down the progression of kidney disease.

If someone in your family had/has kidney disease, you have an increased risk for it yourself. Take the time to learn your risk for kidney disease and seek appropriate treatment or options to prevent life threatening conditions.

Conditions treated by a nephrologist include:

  • Acute and chronic kidney disease, including end stage renal disease (ESRD)
  • Fluid and electrolyte disorders
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure) management
  • Kidney stones
  • Nephrotic syndrome
  • Polycystic kidney disease
  • Renal vascular disease

St. Croix Health works with other local centers in western Wisconsin to provide extended treatment options for our patients. Please contact the nephrology department to learn more.
