Our activities extend outside the boundaries of San Antonio. Physicians offer outpatient consultations and kidney transplants to patients all over South Texas. The Division of Nephrology maintains close working relationships with the nephrologists at Providence Hospital in El Paso and Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin. It also provides training to families to perform peritoneal dialysis and prepare them to conduct home dialysis. Comprehensive care is provided in South Texas children under the direction of the Children’s Kidney Center staff and with help of the local primary care physicians.
