Our Department expertise includes amongst others all areas of nephrology (the study of the kidneys), managing the broad spectrum of conditions affecting the kidneys, transplantation, dialysis and extracorporeal therapies (renal replacement therapies, apheresis) and hypertension (high blood pressure diseases). We treat our patients using evidence-based medicine in a holistic patient-orientated approach, involving a multidisciplinary team work within the internal medicine Department along with other key health care specialists.  

We have an extensive research department, conducting basic science research as well as national and international clinical trials in the fields of nephrology and transplant medicine.
