Nephrology and HTN


Dr. Kenneth Abreo

Welcome to the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension here at the LSU Health Science Center of Shreveport. The Division provides comprehensive care for patients with kidney disease and hypertension. This includes the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases and high blood pressure, hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, transplantation of the kidney and pancreas, placement of tunneled catheters for hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, and thrombolysis and angioplasty of clotted and dysfunctional vascular accesses for hemodialysis.

This Division also offers a fully accredited nephrology fellowship training program with experiences obtained at the University Health Medical Center Shreveport and Willis Knighton Medical Center Shreveport. The program is administered by full-time faculty and is designed to train nephrologists for academic careers and clinical practice.

I invite you to explore our website for more information on our program and what it has to offer. 

With great regards,

Dr. Kenneth Abreo,

Chief of Nephrology
