Many patients can be treated successfully with nonsurgical methods and never require a transplant. Whatever treatment plan is required, Einstein uses state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, technology, medication and best practice intervention techniques to provide the best possible outcomes in treating kidney, liver and pancreatic diseases. In addition, our active clinical and surgical research programs help advance our understanding of diseases in order to provide accurate diagnoses and effective treatment.

End-Stage Renal Disease

The function of the kidneys is to remove waste, toxins and excess fluid from the body. As kidney disease progresses through five stages of disease, functionality decreases. End-stage renal disease occurs when your kidneys function at 10-15% of their normal capacity and are no longer effective to their purpose.

Kidney and Pancreas Transplant

Type 2 diabetes affects the body's ability to metabolize sugar (glucose) properly. In a healthy body, insulin (a hormone) regulates glucose through the cells. Those with type 2 diabetes either resist the insulin or don't produce enough to maintain normal metabolic functions. The disease can cause scarring (cirrhosis) of the liver, among other complications.

Pancreatic Cancer

Located between the stomach and the intestines, this small gland's role is to aid in digestion. Pancreatic cancer is rare but often spreads quickly, and it is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. While most pancreatic cancer is genetic, lifestyle factors that contribute to the disease include tobacco use, obesity, diabetes, chronic pancreatitis and environmental factors such as asbestos, pesticides or other chemicals.
