Nephrology is a medical specialty dedicated to the study and treatment of kidney conditions.

Among the wide range of pathologies addressed, nephrologists treat diseases that can compromise kidney function, such as glomerulonephritis, hereditary diseases, diabetes, hypertension, systemic lupus erythematosus, vasculitis, as well as urinary tract infections and renal lithiasis.

Haemodialysis (renal replacement therapy) and kidney transplant are included in the scope of Nephrology.

Nephrology interacts with various specialties, such as Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and Urology. Joaquim Chaves Saúde units feature several areas of Nephrology, such as Pediatric Nephrology Consultation.
