Glomerular Disease Program
The OHSU Glomerular Disease Program specializes in the treatment of nephrotic syndrome and glomerulonephritis. Our clinic offers initial evaluations as well as "second opinions" for complex patients. Our multidisciplinary team of physicians and pathologists utilizes the most effective treatments tailored to the patient's needs based on the available medical evidence.
Comprehensive Hypertension Program
The OHSU Comprehensive Hypertension Program specializes in the treatment of high blood pressure that is difficult to manage. We offer individualized care through inpatient and outpatient consultation to patients who have hypertension in addition to other complex health conditions.
Kidney Transplant Program
The OHSU Kidney Transplant Program began in 1959 and to date has served more than 5,000 patients. We take a multidisciplinary approach for the care of our transplant patients, including nephrologists and urologists that have extensive experience treating kidney disease.
Our research programs address fundamental processes that are relevant to kidney function in health and disease. We employ a variety of experimental model systems ranging from cells to humans. Our collaborative faculty uses a wide array of techniques that include molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, and microscopy to study the physiology of the kidney in the lab. Our clinical research faculty are involved in both clinical trial and non-trial research projects across different areas of nephrology. Several faculty work directly with the Portland VA Medical Center or have collaborations around the globe.
