Nephrology is the medical study and treatment of the kidneys. Nephrology expert witnesses may be called upon to offer expert opinions regarding such matters as injuries, medical fraud, a misdiagnosis, unforeseen side effects, surgical errors, an issue with healthcare insurance, false information presented to a patient, or other errors and discrepancies taking place within the field.
Diseases and conditions studied and treated by nephrologists include dialysis, kidney disease, renal failure, hypertension, kidney cancer, cytology, acid-base disorders, polycystic kidney disease, kidney stones, glomerulonephritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, blood pressure disorders, electrolyte disorders, diabetes, autoimmune disease, salt sensitivity, anemia, and any other issue related to the kidneys. Nephrology expert witnesses have experience with treating such conditions by performing kidney surgery, kidney biopsies, kidney transplants, and organ replacement, as well as several additional forms of internal medicine. Nephrology physicians may also focus in pediatrics or geriatric care when treating patients for kidney health.
Nephrologist experts are licensed and/or certified by medical boards. It is important to retain an expert whose background matches the particular medical details of each case, as nephrology may apply to several different medical situations.
