Nephrology

Hemodialysis

A machine is used to filter wastes, salts and fluid from your blood when your kidneys are no longer healthy enough to do this work adequately.



Kidney Biopsy

Performed in Interventional Radiology, this procedure removes tissue or cells from the kidney. During a kidney biopsy, tissue samples are removed with a special needle to determine if cancer or other abnormal cells are present, or to determine how well the kidney is working.
