Nephrology focuses on diagnosing and treating conditions and diseases that affect kidney function. Since many of these are chronic, nephrologists also work with patients to help them manage their conditions and prevent them from progressing.
Nephrologists treat a broad range of diseases and conditions, including:
- Electrolyte disorders
- Renal failure
- Kidney cancer diagnosis
- Kidney stones
- Urinary tract infection
- Management of dialysis
The Northeast Kidney Foundation recently honored Saratoga Hospital with the “Contributions to Healthcare Award” in recognition of the hospital’s efforts on behalf of those living with kidney disease and related conditions.
