Nephrology

Our Specialist

OUr approach

 

We frequently encounter patients suffering from acute or chronic renal insufficiency. The underlying cause may be infectious, autoimmune, vascular, hereditary or toxic, which is why this specialty is so complex. Blood and urine analyses, renal biopsy, renal ultrasound or other imaging procedures are used for the diagnosis.
The nephrologist also manages procedures to support renal function, including dialysis and the preparation and follow-up of kidney transplants.
