Kidney

Your kidneys serve an important role for you. They filter your blood, help with blood pressure and also stimulate red blood cell growth. If you’re having kidney problems, our nephrologists and urologists are here to help.

At Banner Health, you have access to specialized treatments and a team who will work with you to keep your kidneys healthy. We’re dedicated to making sure you fully understand your medical care and that you have the support you need.
