About Us

Weill Cornell Medicine's nephrology program is proud to partner with NewYork-Presbyterian, ranked #2 in the nation.

Our excellence is the fruit of a philosophy that a synergistic relationship between Nephrology and Hypertension, Pediatric Nephrology, Transplantation Medicine, Surgery and Pathology, Rogosin Institute and Nephrology services at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, is essential for creating new patient advances that improve outcomes and educate the next generation of physicians and physician-scientists.

Our nephrology, transplantation, and hypertension specialists, all conveniently located in New York City’s Upper East Side, provide compassionate, comprehensive and state-of-the-art care to every patient afflicted with kidney disease, high blood pressure, requiring a kidney or pancreas transplant, or having previously undergone transplantation. We aim to provide optimal and individualized care for patients with these problems. To this end, our nephrologists provide renal consultation, renal biopsy, as well as evaluation and management of hypertension and other kidney disorders. Our hypertension specialists believe hypertension is not the same disease in every patient, and that it has different mechanisms in different individuals. Our transplant physicians provide all aspects of transplant medicine care. Each patient is treated based on his/her individual profile, with every attempt made to personalize care.
