Kidney Disease 

We provide care and guidance for patients with kidney disease including but are not limited to Chronic Kidney Disease. Midwest Nephrology is among the oldest and largest nephrology groups in Wisconsin. We understand that every patient is different and strive to provide the best possible care for the medical condition and individual.

As many of the kidney diseases are long term, if you understand the condition better it makes us a stronger team together. Some links that you may find very helpful are listed below. If you need more information about your condition, ask us during  your appointment.

Fresenius Healthcare Information is available for patients with CKD on topics such as staying healthy. There is also information for patients who will be starting dialysis including the various treatment options.
