Nephrology is the care and treatment of kidneys. 

Your kidneys filter waste and excess fluid from your body, regulate your body’s chemical balance, release hormones that help control blood pressure, stimulate red blood cell production, and keep your bones strong. Kidney disease prevents your kidneys from performing these functions properly. Visit our Health Library to learn more about kidney disease.

At UPMC Hamot, our expert nephrologists can provide the care you need to support your kidney function.
