Quality Care for Kidneys and Renal Disease
Nephrology is a branch of medicine that deals with diseases and conditions affecting the kidneys. A nephrologist is a specialist in this field who studies and treats conditions like chronic kidney disease, kidney failure, and kidney infections.

Using urinalysis, renal imaging services, and, when necessary, kidney biopsies, Memorial’s nephrologists can provide the proper diagnosis of your renal disease.
Memorial’s nephrology specialists treat the following renal conditions:
- Chronic kidney disease
- Kidney stones
