Patient Care

With over 50 years of providing Kidney care to the San Diego community at large, UC San Diego's Division of Nephrology and Hypertension is committed to exceptional, top of the line healthcare for our patients. Recently, our community presence has grown tremendously throughout San Diego County; in 2020 alone, we inaugurated clinics in both Vista and Chula Vista while also expanding our apheresis and dialysis programs. Our transplant program, currently ranked the top kidney transplant program in San Diego, has been a beacon of hope for so many residents in our county, and Southern California region. Even in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, our dedicated transplant team has performed over 100 kidney transplants in 2020.

As part of the largest academic health care system in the region, our nephrology team is fully engaged in kidney research and the latest medical advances to ensure our patients have access to the best treatment options. Our multidisciplinary team- including pathologists, pharmacists, nurses, registered dieticians, and licensed clinical social workers, provide unparalleled services tailored to the needs of our renal patients. Whether an acute hospital stay, a clinic or home dialysis visit, we are confident you will feel in trusted and capable hands. We invite you to explore and consider UC San Diego Nephrology & Hypertension and learn firsthand why we rank among the 50 best Nephrology programs in the nation by U.S. News and World Report.
