Stanford Glomerular Disease Center



Our glomerular disease clinic embraces all glomerular diseases patients, utilizing cutting edge diagnostics and therapeutics, spanning primary disease (IgAN, membranous, FSGS, minimal change, C3GN, ICGN, fibrillary) to systemic (ANCA- related, anti-GBM related, lupus nephritis, light chain disease related, infection related, drug/toxin related and cancer related). We counsel and treat women with pregnancy related issues regarding glomerular disease as well. We emphasize clinical trials as an option for all of our patients and encourage patients to join disease support groups and registries.
