About Me

As an onco-nephrologist, I see patients with kidney dysfunction, hypertension and electrolyte disorders caused by cancer or cancer therapies. Onco-nephrology is a newer but growing specialty.

Kidney function is a complex interaction of medications, underlying medical conditions and dietary habits. When a patient is fighting cancer, this interaction becomes even more complex. Maintaining healthy kidney function is essential in order to receive lifesaving cancer treatments. I provide all my patients with individualized care to ensure that kidney injuries can be identified early and reversed so that cancer treatments can continue.

Unfortunately, cancer patients who have renal dysfunction are excluded from most clinical trials. It is estimated that almost one third of cancer patients have some degree of renal dysfunction. I am very passionate about helping these patients overcome their kidney conditions so that they can focus on their fight against cancer.

When I proposed initiating an onco-nephrology clinic here at Ohio State, I was granted all the help, clinic space and resources within a week. It’s this rapid response and devotion to patient care that makes me proud to work at an institution like Ohio State.

When I’m not working I enjoy traveling, reading and fitness. I’m also a season ticket holder for the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Columbus Crew.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 03/28/2017, Dr. Prosek has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
