As experts in diseases of the kidney and urinary tract, nephrologists diagnose and treat conditions from kidney stones to renal failure. We also provide dialysis treatments for people with kidney failure.
Many diseases affecting the kidney are systemic disorders — that is, conditions or illnesses that affect more than one part of the body. For instance, people who have diabetes may also have related problems with kidney function. Systemic disorders may require treatment from more than one specialist. MultiCare nephrologists collaborate with doctors including cardiologists, endocrinologists and others to provide the comprehensive care you need.
Your doctor may refer you to a nephrologist for conditions including blood in your urine, electrolyte disorders and more. You may also be referred to a kidney specialist if other diseases, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, may have damaged your kidneys.
