One of the most experienced teams of kidney disease specialists, UofL Physicians, are right here in Bullitt County. Serving more than 5,000 patients annually, our compassionate and caring multidisciplinary team of nephrologists, nurses, dieticians and social workers are dedicated to educating and treating the community of patients living with kidney disease.

Kidney disease is a widespread problem afflicting many individuals with common issues such as hypertension and diabetes. Genetic or immune system disorders and a variety of other conditions may also affect the kidneys. Each patient should be screened regularly by a primary care provider with a simple blood and urine test. Patients with a family history of kidney disease, diabetes or hypertension are at greater risk and need to be more closely monitored. Kidney damage resulting from these conditions may cause the kidneys to be ineffective in removing wastes from the body and eventually may cause permanent kidney failure.

Our UofL Physicians have been committed to physician education as well as training medical students, general physicians and kidney specialists who continue to care for patients in the region and nationwide. Through leading-edge medical research and the latest technologies, we are dedicated to finding better ways to understand and treat kidney disease and are recognized nationally for our efforts and research.
