What Is Nephrology?

Nephrology is a specialty of internal medicine that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease and related conditions. Nephrologists treat systemic conditions affecting the kidneys, such as diabetes and hypertension.

According to the National Kidney Foundation, 1 in 3 Americans are at risk for kidney disease and 37 million people currently have chronic kidney disease. At Foothills Nephrology, we are here to help you or your family member get through the complications of renal disease.
