About our department
- Early detection of renal insufficiency is important because suitable therapy can prevent its development into more serious forms of renal failure. Collaboration with the GP is of crucial importance in this.
- Since patients with kidney disorders often suffer other disorders (cardiovascular disease, diabetes), the nephrologists and other specialists and departments within and outside of the hospital work closely together.
- In the Pre-dialysis Clinic, patients with chronic renal failure are supported by a multidisciplinary team consisting of a nephrologist, a specialised nurse, a dietitian, a social worker and a vascular/general surgeon.
- Through medication and diet, the deterioration of kidney function is slowed down as much as possible and the ill effects of reduced kidney function are limited.
- If kidney function is poor, a great deal of attention is paid too to the preparations of renal replacement therapy.
