Home / Services / Nephrology


Nephrology, a subspeciality of internal medicine, focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease. Because the kidney performs critical functions – removing waste and excess fluid from the blood, maintaining the body’s electrolyte balance, releasing hormones with functions such as managing blood pressure and more – Nephrologists are hyper-focused and experts in primary kidney disorders and management of kidney dysfunction.
