Home Nephrology


Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that deals with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation).

Nephrologists are medical specialists who provide diagnosis and treatment for all diseases related to kidneys.

While urologists and nephrologists both treat kidney problems, urologists are surgical specialists who focus on the anatomical or structural disorders of the kidneys and the urinary tract.
