Clinical Service Chief

The Nephrology Service at Houston Methodist Hospital offers exceptional care to inpatients and outpatients suffering from renal disease and failure. The service works closely with the Methodist Transplant Center and Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center to help care for kidney transplant patients and post-operative inpatients with cardiovascular complications.

Houston Methodist's Nephrology Service plays a strong role in a continuing legacy of academic excellence, including training fellows and nurses specializing in kidney disease and complications. Every year, significant studies are published by Houston Methodist physicians who develop clinical research protocols and study new, advanced modalities for renal therapy. This academic emphasis fuels the service's goal to provide the highest quality patient care with accessible treatments and innovative therapies, and has helped us attain our ranking as one of the nation's best hospitals for nephrology from U.S. News & World Report.
