Senior Nephrologist, chairman
St Louis, St. Mary’s Health Center
John Mellas, MD has been practicing nephrology for thirty years in St. Louis, Missouri. Dr Mellas is the senior partner in the largest nephrology practice in St. Louis. He is also chairman of the Nephrology Division at St. Mary’s Health Center where he is actively involved in teaching internal medicine trainees. Dr Mellas has developed a method to measure creatinine clearance in acute kidney injury and has been using it in his practice for the last several years. With this method he is able to detect the onset of renal injury early in its course and with significant accuracy. This method allows one to forecast the course of renal injury prospectively; something that is not possible with the present metrics of renal injury.
