Nephrology is the area of medicine that focuses on kidney disease. In most cases, a patient is referred to a Nephrologist for such conditions as kidney failure, hematuria, hypertension (high blood pressure), kidney stones or other types of diseases.
The kidneys are designed to act as a filter for a person’s blood, removing waste and toxins from the body. Because of the vital role that the kidneys play in one’s overall health, it is critically important that they remain healthy for a lifetime.
