Compassionate Kidney Care In Your Backyard

Our highly-skilled, board-certified nephrologists treat conditions such as acute renal failure, chronic kidney disease, hematuria or blood in the urine, and proteinuria or excess protein in the urine. With appropriate intervention, kidney patients can work and live normal lives.

After kidney failure, dialysis can provide an artificial replacement for healthy kidneys. Dialysis restores balance in your body by removing toxins, salt, and extra water – keeping mineral levels at a safe level, and controlling your blood pressure.

We offer a variety of treatments and services for patients with kidney-related diseases, including:

  • Hemodialysis
  • Peritoneal dialysis
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Educational resources
  • Social services
  • Transplant referral

Dialysis

Our dialysis centers feature:

  • 32 comfortable chairs
  • Safe, private environment
  • State-of-the-art dialysis equipment
  • Innovative technology in vascular access grafts

Kidney Transplant Program

For patients with kidney disease, a kidney transplant can offer a second chance at life. Freeman Kidney Center refers patients needing a transplant to one of the region’s many available facilities that offer comprehensive and coordinated care. With this program, patients can complete all required pre-surgery testing in one convenient location.

 

March O’ the Kidney

March O’ the Kidney is a 1-mile walk in honor of dialysis patients. We walk to raise awareness and funds for those suffering from kidney disease – a life-threatening condition that affects millions of people. Patients with chronic kidney disease must go on dialysis, and these lengthy treatments make it difficult for patients to work or enjoy a typical lifestyle. Many struggle to pay for medical expenses, proper nutrition and transportation costs. Help us raise funds to meet their needs! All funds raised will be used locally for direct patient assistance through the Freeman Dialysis Patient Assistance Fund. Click here to learn more!
