Nephrologists are kidney doctors who specialize in the care and treatment of renal or kidney related disorders. Broadly, the diseases that are treated by them include autoimmune diseases, kidney cancers, diabetic nephropathy, blood pressure and several others. Nephrology requires additional training to become a specialist with advanced skills and knowledge.
Some of the procedures a nephrologist may perform include native kidney and transplant kidney biopsy, dialysis access insertion (temporary vascular access lines, tunneled vascular access lines, peritoneal dialysis access lines), fistula management (angiographic or surgical fistulogram and plastic).

Kidney Stones: Kidney stones are the clumps of waste that build up and stick together in the kidneys due to too much waste and not enough fluid in the body.
Kidney Failure: Kidney failure happens when the kidneys lose the ability to sufficiently filter waste from the blood.
Chronic Nephropathy: Chronic Nephropathy is caused by damage to the small blood vessels or to the units in the kidneys that help to clean the blood.
Chronic Kidney Disease: Chronic kidney disease is slow and gradual damage to kidney function over several years. A person eventually develops permanent kidney failure if not treated.
