What is a Nephrologist?

Nephrology is a subspecialty of internal medicine. A nephrologist is a kidney specialist who cares for patients in all stages of kidney disease and related conditions. They have special expertise in clinical nephrology, dialysis and hypertension, but also treat conditions related to the kidneys, like kidney injury, high blood pressure, kidney transplant, genetic conditions and more. They see patients in the office, hospital, dialysis center or nursing home, but also may perform diagnostic tests and outpatient procedures.
