My practice is focused on the general care of patients who have received kidney transplants. This includes managing immunosuppressive medications, post-transplant complications and overall health maintenance. I work closely with the rest of our transplant team and with colleagues in other specialties to ensure that patients receive the best possible care for their complex medical problems at all times.
I also have clinics dedicated to evaluating patients who have Chronic Kidney Disease and are interested in receiving a kidney transplant. I spend time educating patients about the risks and benefits of kidney transplantation and helping them figure out if this is the right option for them. I oversee their transplant work-up with the goal of providing them with the best possible outcome.
I participate in several multi-center trials which investigate new drugs that could potentially improve outcomes for kidney transplant patients in the future. I have a particular interest in elderly kidney transplant recipients and my research is focused on investigating novel means to predict which patients would be vulnerable post-transplant.
I am actively involved in teaching medical students, residents and Nephrology fellows. They join me in clinic and in rounds as they learn how to care for patients with kidney disease in general and those with kidney transplants in particular.
