Cystic and Interstitial Diseases Clinic

Cystic and Interstitial Diseases Clinic

Polycystic kidney disease and other cystic diseases are common causes of kidney failure. Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease is the most common genetic condition causing kidney failure. Additionally, some of these cystic diseases predispose to a host of other complications, including kidney stones, infections, diverticular disease, and aneurysms, which nephrologists in this clinic evaluate and address.

Similarly, interstitial kidney diseases are a host of kidney diseases that may be due to certain exposures (medications, heavy metals, etc.) or autoimmune illnesses that can cause acute or chronic kidney damage. Our nephrologists have expertise in the diagnosis and management of these kidney conditions.
