At Memorial Hermann’s Heart and Vascular Institute multi-disciplinary teams deliver cutting edge and comprehensive care to cardiac patients. Our fellows have the opportunity to rotate on a service completely devoted to the care of kidney patients with cardiac disease. In addition to ESKD and CKD care, they gain experience in managing renal replacement therapy in patients with circulatory support devices and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
