CODIRECTOR. NEPHROLOGY DEPARTMENT

The Nephrology Service of the Clinica Universidad de Navarra has more than 50 years of experience, both in the diagnosis and treatment of all kidney pathologies and in the transplant of this organ. 

Our specialists have completed their training in centers of national and international reference in different disciplines of this area of Medicine.

We have a Renal Transplant Unit and we are a reference center in Navarra for kidney transplants, also from living donors.

Moreover, we have been one of the first hospitals to perform live donor transplants with blood incompatibility.

In our Dialysis Unit, patients who attend hemodialysis sessions will be attended by a nurse and an assistant, as well as by the nephrologist when necessary.

In addition, we offer nutritional advice and advice on the most suitable physical exercise for each situation. And, when appropriate, advice on post-transplant care.
