ECMC End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) FREE Patient Education Sessions

ECMC’s Center for Outpatient Dialysis regularly holds End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Education Sessions. Although you may be unfamiliar or not entirely informed about this disease and the causes of it, this FREE session will enable you and your family members/guests to have a much better understanding of ESRD.

ECMC clinicians have created this ESRD Education Session to inform you about End Stage Renal Disease and the various treatment options available.

One in every eight adults in Western New York has been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease and an equal number in the community may be undiagnosed. While ESRD is a serious condition, it is not uncommon and is well managed by carefully following the advice and instructions provided by your primary care physician, nephrology physician (kidney/renal care specialist), clinical nurse, dietitian, social worker, and all of the other members of your care team.

Should you eventually become a candidate for a kidney transplant, ECMC has a long history of successful transplantation thanks to the expertise of our leading kidney transplant specialists. In addition to diagnosing and treating complex medical conditions and performing the multifaceted procedures associated with organ transplants, ECMC’s Department of Nephrology has an excellent reputation for clinical research and scientific discovery in the area of kidney disease. ECMC clinicians will guide you, suggest options and offer treatment recommendations to address your healthcare needs.
