Q: Who is a nephrologist?
A: A nephrologist is a medical professional who deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and management of kidney diseases. They also have expertise in identifying how kidney conditions can affect other parts of the body. They can prescribe medical and surgical treatments, but cannot perform surgeries.
Q: Can a nephrologist treat urinary tract infection?
A: A nephrologist can treat a patient with a chronic urinary tract infection, as there is a chance that it may have spread to the kidneys. A urologist too can treat a urinary tract infection.
Q: Does a nephrologist perform a kidney transplant?
A: Nephrologists are not qualified to perform a kidney transplant. They check the patient for any medical conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes as these need to be controlled before the transplantation begins. Even after the transplantation surgery, nephrologists care after patients for a long time for follow-up care and problems that may arise, such as transplant rejection.

Q: Can a nephrologist treat kidney stone?
A: Nephrologists are involved in the treatment and prevention of recurrent kidney stones.
