Overview

Overview

Cleveland Clinic's Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute is recognized worldwide for excellence in patient care, teaching and research.

The Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute merges Cleveland Clinic’s urology and nephrology programs. This consolidation of disciplines allows us to better serve patients in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease while we continue to provide high-quality patient care and carry on innovative research in all aspects of urology.

Urology and nephrology physicians and scientists at Cleveland Clinic are recognized worldwide for excellence in patient care, teaching and research. This year, U.S. News & World Report ranked both our urology program and our kidney disease program No. 2 in the nation.

In addition to Cleveland Clinic’s main campus, our urologists and nephrologists practice in the community at Cleveland Clinic family health and surgery centers and in our affiliated medical offices. Whether your doctor refers you or you make your own appointment, you can feel comfortable knowing that the Cleveland Clinic doctor who will care for you is experienced in diagnosing and treating many patients with your condition.

The Institute Advantage

The creation of the Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute reflects the groundbreaking structural changes happening at Cleveland Clinic. In an innovative step toward improved patient care, Cleveland Clinic restructured clinical areas around organ and disease systems, rather than individual specialties. This model is unique in U.S. medicine and is the future of healthcare. By aligning physicians with shared expertise in common institutes, we can offer patients the best in clinical care, research, treatment and prevention.
