Mid-Atlantic Nephrology Associates (MANA) provides medical care to patients with a variety of kidney related disorders. Some of the conditions that we treat are;

  • Acute kidney injury
  • Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
  • End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD)
  • Hematuria and proteinuria (blood or protein in the urine)
  • Glomerulonephritis
  • Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Electrolyte and bone disorders
  • Kidney stone prevention
  • Pre and post kidney transplant care
  • Anemia associated with chronic kidney disease (includes intravenous iron therapy)

Hospital Practice
MANA physicians provide care to patients in 13 area hospitals: Ascension St. Agnes Hospital, Greater Baltimore Medical Center, Howard County Medical Center, Lifebridge Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center & Hospital, Lifebridge Northwest Hospital Center, Lifebridge Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center, MedStar Harbor Hospital, MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, Mercy Medical Center, UM Baltimore Washington Medical Center, UM Midtown Campus, and UM St. Joseph Medical Center. MANA physicians currently act as the Chief of Nephrology at 9 of these hospitals.

Office Practice
Our providers see patients at 7 offices. As part of our comprehensive plan of care for our patients, we have 4 Kidney HOME (Home Options and Medical Education) Centers dedicated to providing education on chronic kidney disease. We feel it is imperative that patients gain knowledge regarding their medical condition and take an active role in their own care.

Dialysis Practice
MANA physicians and nurse practitioners provide care to patients on home hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and in-center hemodialysis. At our Kidney HOME Centers, we provide training on home dialysis therapies to those patients who are interested in dialyzing at home.

Vascular Access Services
As part of the comprehensive care we provide to our patients on dialysis, we maintain an outpatient vascular access center where patients can get same day minimally invasive radiological procedures to maintain the function of their dialysis accesses. We have found that by providing these interventional procedures on an outpatient basis, our patients experience much less disruption to their overall dialysis treatment plan. Procedures that previously required a hospital stay are now performed within our practice in an outpatient setting. Depending on the procedures performed, patients can be treated at our vascular access center in less than 1.5 hours.
