Specializes in Urology

Nephrology is the study of the kidney: its structure, its function, and its diseases. The kidney is an incredibly complex organ that participates in a large number of essential bodily functions. Nephrologists are fellowship trained after completing an internal medicine residency, and they are experts in non-surgical treatment of the kidneys and renal function.
