Frequently Asked Questions

What role do your kidneys play?

The kidneys are vital organs responsible for filtering waste and excess fluids from the blood to form urine. They help regulate electrolyte balance, blood pressure, and red blood cell production through hormone secretion.

What is the difference between Nephrology and Urology?

Nephrologists treat kidney diseases that affect how the kidneys work, such as chronic kidney disease.

Urologists specialize in all parts of the urinary tract, including the bladder, kidneys and urethra, the tube that carries urine outside the body. They’re also experts in the male reproductive system.
