The Nephrology department looks after patients with kidney problems. It provides them with the treatment required: either through medicines, tablets, or via dialysis or even kidney transplantation

What They Do
Everybody normally has 2 kidneys. The kidneys remove waste, like urea, from the blood. They also control the amount of water in our bodies. If the kidneys do not work properly these are not removed, and people get sick. The urea levels go up, make people ill. Water also builds up in the body to cause even more problems. People with malfunctioning kidneys come to the Nephrology department for treatment.
