Nephrologists treat diseases of the kidneys. They also administer dialysis, treatment for patients with kidney failure, which is usually caused by diabetes, high blood pressure, cysts and glomerulonephrities. Dialysis removes toxins from the body when the kidneys are unable to do so.
Some conditions nephrologists treat include, but are not limited to:
- Polycystic kidney disease
- Kidney stones
Georgetown Community Hospital offers inpatient dialysis.
