Rumford Hospital Offers Nephrology (Kidney) Care

Rumford Hospital offers care for patients of all ages with kidney diseases and kidney-related disorders. Doctors trained in nephrology (kidney care) see patients on the first and last Thursdays of each month.

Kidney problems may arise from an autoimmune disorder, such as lupus, or a metabolic disorder like diabetes. Kidney issues, such as polycystic kidney disease, have a genetic basis.

Visiting specialists from Nephrology Associates in Lewiston, evaluate, test and treat a wide variety of kidney diseases and conditions, including acute kidney failure and chronic kidney disease. They consult with patients about dialysis, surgery and transplant treatments.
