Nephrology



A nephrologist specialises in diagnosing and treating problems with kidneys, high blood pressure, fluid retention, and electrolyte imbalance. Most diseases affecting the kidney are not limited to the organ itself, but are systemic disorders – they affect the whole body.

 

Nephrology centres around the diagnosis of kidney disease and its treatment (medication, dialysis), and the follow-up of renal transplant patients. Additionally, most nephrologists are expert in the care of electrolyte disorders and hypertension. Given that most renal conditions are chronic, nephrologists often treat their patients over many years.

 

At Epworth HealthCare, we work with some of the most skilled doctors and specialists in Melbourne, supported by some of the most technologically-advanced facilities and equipment in Australia.

 

Nephrology services are offered at Epworth Eastern, Epworth Freemasons and Epworth Richmond.
