About Melbourne Kidney Specialists
Melbourne Kidney Specialists are Nephrologists specialising in Renal Medicine in Richmond, VIC, Australia.
Nephrology, or renal medicine involves diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases and disorders. Common problems with the kidneys include: acute loss of kidney function or chronic worsening of function; hypertension, kidney stones; urinary tract infections; blood loss in the urine; and protein loss in the urine. Treatment for many kidney disorders by a Nephrologist, commonly involves medications. However, if kidney function worsens or begins to fail, dialysis may be needed and, later, kidney transplantation.
