The aim of the Winthrop Kidney Health Program is to keep patients with chronic kidney disease in an optimal state of health and well being by providing them with individualized care using the most advanced treatments. This care is delivered with the help of a multidisciplinary team and is aided by a sophisticated informatics support system. This unique program including physicians, nursing and other disciplines is designed to help those patients who are at risk to protect their kidneys and delay and even prevent the development of kidney failure while maintaining an excellent quality of life.
For those patients who do develop kidney failure the aim of the program is to help them obtain kidney transplants through a transplant program at Winthrop run by the renowned Columbia University Medical Center Transplant Program and help many avoid the need for dialysis. This innovative program allows patients to undergo their transplant evaluation right here on Long Island at the Nephrology practice site at Winthrop. Columbia University is one of the country’s leading transplant programs and this program with Winthrop allows patients to receive the highest quality transplant care.
To schedule an appointment to be evaluated for a kidney transplant by the Columbia Transplant Team at Winthrop, please contact Joan Kelly, RN, BSN, CCTC, at (212)305-6393 and ask to have your appointment scheduled at Winthrop.
