Jens is nationally and internationally known for his research and clinical program development in Nephrology.
  • The Section has provided renal service for more than 30 years and has extensive experience in the treatment of kidney and related diseases and renal replacement therapy - both hospital-based outpatient hemodialysis and an equally proficient and unparalleled home-based peritoneal dialysis program.
