Doctor for Your Kidneys

A nephrologist is a doctor that specializes in treating the kidneys. Nephrology is a specialty of internal medicine that focuses on the treatment of diseases that affect the kidneys.

You have two kidneys. They’re located below your ribcage on either side of your spine. The kidneys have several vital functions, including:

  • removing waste and excess fluid from the blood
  • maintaining your body’s electrolyte balance
  • releasing hormones with functions such as managing blood pressure
