Nephrology is incredibly challenging and that is exactly why it appeals to Dr. Ramchand Ranai. In his practice, he approaches medicine by applying his knowledge and understanding of the body’s chemistry and complex systems to the management of kidney disease and its complications.

After working in private practice in Chicago for two years, he joined KSOSN in 2004 and began developing their chronic kidney disease–CKD management program known as Kidney Support Services, or KSS.
As Director of the KSS Program, Dr. Ranai helped establish protocols for a comprehensive approach to kidney disease management employed by all KSOSN physicians. Dr. Ranai enjoys developing long-term relationships with his patients and their primary care doctors, with continuing collaboration to develop a more successful treatment plan.
