Nephrology focuses on the study of normal kidney function and kidney problems including electrolyte disturbances and hypertension and the care of those requiring renal replacement therapy including dialysis and renal transplant patients.

At JCMG, nephrologists treat acquired and genetic conditions that affect the kidney by regulating blood pressure and electrolytes, balancing fluids in the body, and administering dialysis. Diseases that affect the kidney are typically systematic diseases and require special treatment.
