Nephrology With one in nine adults suffering from chronic kidney disease and another 20 million at risk, the availability of this specialty is of critical importance.

Nephrology is the study of kidneys and their related diseases. Specializing in the treatment of a variety of conditions related to kidney disease, nephrologists care for patients who experience illnesses as a result of abnormalities in their body's water and/or mineral balance (electrolyte disorders), hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes-related kidney diseases and kidney failure, including those who must rely on dialysis or a kidney transplant.

The Ottawa office is staffed full time.
