The Kidney Specialists of Southern Nevada story
Kidney Specialists of Southern Nevada (KSOSN) was established in Las Vegas by Allen Busby, MD in 1976. Over the past 30 years, the practice has grown to meet the needs of the community we serve and now includes nineteen physicians, nearly thirty support staff in six offices across greater Las Vegas and Pahrump, a chronic kidney disease support program and a vascular access center.
KSOSN offers the region’s most comprehensive kidney care services. We have assembled an entire team of caregivers–physicians, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, nurses, dietician, medical assistants and patient care coordinators–to both treat and educate patients on how best to manage their kidney disease. Our approach provides our patients with the best resources for slowing the progression of kidney disease and helping improve their quality of life.
Our integrated approach incorporates every aspect of nephrology with intensive patient education and support, close collaboration with dialysis centers offering a range of in-center and at-home services, a state-of-the-art vascular access center, and transplant nephrologists who are part of the region’s transplant team.
We are a practice that stays on the leading edge of medical care. We have memberships in both national and international nephrology and medical associations. All KSOSN offices are equipped with a state of the art charting system and paperless medical records to provide more efficient patient care and more accurate record keeping.
Our nephrologists mentor medical students and resident physicians at area medical schools. Kidney Specialists of Southern Nevada is on academic faculty for nephrology at University Medical Center of Southern Nevada, University of Nevada School of Medicine, Las Vegas, Valley Hospital Medical Center, Las Vegas and Touro University School of Osteopathic Medicine, Las Vegas.
