Nephrology (Kidney Disease) - SBH Health System

Nephrology (Kidney Disease)

The Nephrology Service at SBH Health System provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plans for patients with kidney disease. Among the common causes of kidney disease are diabetes and hypertension, both of which have a high incidence in the Bronx. As kidney disease is often asymptomatic, it is important for patients with family histories of diabetes and high blood pressure to see their physicians on a regular basis.

We emphasize a team approach and a commitment to providing patients with the highest quality of care by creating individual treatments plans that include ongoing education, nutritional guidance, and lifestyle interventions to help slow the progression of kidney disease.

For patients with advanced kidney disease, SBH has a modern state-of-the-art outpatient Hemodialysis Center located just a few steps from the hospital. In hemodialysis, blood flows a few ounces at a time through a special filter that removes wastes and extra fluids. The machine then returns clean blood to the body with the harmful wastes, extra salt and fluids removed.   This helps control the patient’s blood pressure and maintains the proper balance of chemicals like potassium and sodium in the body.

The 40-station facility uses advanced technology for dialysis treatments. Every patient station is equipped with a comfortable chair and flat-screen TV.
