Polycystic Kidney Disease
The University of Colorado Hospital is a leader in the treatment of polycystic kidney disease and is at the forefront of research for our patients.
Polycystic kidney disease is an inherited disorder that affects the kidneys and other organs. Clusters of fluid-filled sacs, called cysts, develop in the kidneys and interfere with their ability to filter waste products from the blood.
The growth of cysts can cause the kidneys to become enlarged and may eventually lead to kidney failure.
