Allow patients in Northern Nevada with kidney associated conditions to have access to the most advanced and cutting edge treatments and technologies for their conditions.

Sierra Nevada Nephrology is actively involved in many clinical research trials.  We focus on clinical trials that are attempting to improve the care of chronic kidney disease, hypertension, genetic renal disease, anemia, gout, anemia, electrolyte abnormalities, and a variety of other conditions associated with kidney care.  We believe any, and all, patients with advanced chronic diseases, including kidney disease, should have access to the most recent and advanced care strategies and medications available.

Our team of dedicated research nurses and physicians have many years of experience caring for and monitoring patients in clinical trials.  We work in concert with local labs and imaging centers to administer the trials, limiting the burden of travel and inconvenience.
