This month we would like to shine the spotlight on Dr. Fidel Barrantes-Ramirez of Renal Medicine Associates in Albuquerque, NM.
Dr. Barrantes has special interests in education in kidney disease, health literacy (especially in disadvantaged and minority communities), kidney transplantation outcomes in the elderly and other high-risk groups, and in translational medicine. He believes a well-informed patient always does better. This strong belief led him to author two educational books titled “The First Hundred Days after Kidney Transplant Surgery” and “All About Kidney Transplant. A practical guide for patients, caregivers and providers.”
His passion to improve patient education has also contributed to the creation of the RMA Kidney Foundation, which seeks to improve the quality of life in individuals with or at risk of kidney disease and to decrease kidney failure rates in New Mexico.
We are honored to know Dr. Barrantes and to have the opportunity to work with him and his team at Renal Medicine Associates in Albuquerque.
