About

Michael Alan Kraus, MD, FACP, works for Indiana University as a Professor of Medicine, nephrology clinical coordinator, and Medical Director of Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD), Hemodialysis and Acute Dialysis Units in Indianapolis, Indiana.  He is considered to be an expert in home dialysis and other renal replacement therapies for those suffering from renal disease.  He is currently conducting research in shorter home renal replacement therapies, and also places peritoneal dialysis catheters in locally.
