Pillar of the nephrology community, Dr. Todd Siu-Toa Ing, passed away peacefully on October 24, 2023
Dr. Ing, combined the roles of physician, scientist, and professor of medicine with a lifetime of expertise in dialysis, a life-saving treatment for patients whose kidneys have stopped working.
Dr. Ing spent 25 plus years caring for veterans at Hines Veterans Affairs Hospital as Chief of the Renal and Hypertension Section. His faculty appointment was at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.
Dr. Ing co-edited 5 editions of the widely used Handbook of Dialysis which was translated into a dozen languages. He published nearly 300 scientific manuscripts during his career and trained countless fellows, residents and medical students.
"Dr. Ing leaves behind a large group of specialists in nephrology and internal medicine whom he inspired and helped train," writes former colleague Dr. John Daugirdas. "He was always very supportive of his patients with kidney disease, and always emphasized the need to focus first on their care in an academic medicine environment."
The National Kidney Foundation of Illinois wishes to express our sincere condolences to the Ing family. Dr. Ing's significant contributions to nephrology are a lasting legacy for all those affected by kidney disease.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday November 11, 2023 at 11 AM at Wm. H. Scott Funeral Home, 1100 Greenleaf Ave, Wilmette, Illinois. More details here.
