Welcome to Penn State Hershey Nephrology
Penn State Nephrology covers a full array of services in dialysis, renal transplantation, hypertension, inpatient service, consultation service, and outpatient consultative and long-term follow-up activities.
All modalities of dialysis are available, including hemodialysis, acute hemodialysis, hemofiltration, chronic ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), chronic cyclic peritoneal dialysis (CCPD), and continuous venoveno hemofiltration dialysis (CVVHD). A cadre of eighty dialysis patients are followed long-term. Additionally, dialysis is performed as necessary for patients undergoing kidney transplant and for transients visiting the area. The kidney transplant service is active performing 100 kidney transplants per year. This program also performs combined kidney/pancreas transplants and liver transplants as well.
The inpatient and consultation service are combined into one active service that follows an inpatient census of 15 to 20 patients. The outpatient clinic sees a broad spectrum of clinical renal diseases, including renal stones, renal tubular acidosis, glomerular diseases, hematuria/proteinuria, chronic renal insufficiency, and complicated hypertension.
