Kidney Services

Nephrologists provide care and treatment for patients suffering from kidney problems. Kidneys are blood-cleanings organs that perform vital functions including:

  • Removing waste from the body in the form of urine
  • Filtering toxins from the blood
  • Helping to regulate blood pressure and the balance of certain important nutrients, including potassium and calcium.

Mary Greeley Medical Center's Dialysis Center provides kidney patients with hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.

Urinary Services

Urologists treat issues related to the urinary systems, including:

  • Bladders problems
  • Prostate disorders
  • Incontinence
  • Kidney stones
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Cancers of the urinary tract
  • In addition to traditional surgical and non-surgical methods, McFarland Clinic urologists use several modern approaches to treating urinary system difficulties, including:

    • Laser treatment for kidney stones
    • Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL, which uses highly focused impulses to pulverize kidney stones)
    • Minimally invasive prostate treatment, such as microwave therapy
