Patient Resources                                     

The VCKD website allows patients to find information regarding various kidney diseases as well as learn more about our physicians and researchers.

We work as a team to perform innovative research and translate discoveries into personalized care to prevent, diagnose and cure kidney disease. Kidney disease is the eighth most common cause of death in the United States and affects more than 20 million people, yet many people do not realize they have kidney disease because symptoms are often slow to develop and may not be evident for some time
