Nephropathology

Nephropathology is a pathology subspecialty, focusing on the microscopic diagnosis and interpretation of kidney biopsies. Most nephropathology focuses on understanding the key features associated with the disease processes seen in the patients’ own kidneys as well as in those who have received transplanted kidneys.

State-of-the-art procedures for kidney transplantation include:

  • Cadaveric renal transplantation
  • Cadaver-donor kidney transplantation
  • Living donor kidney transplants (from both related and unrelated donors)
  • Laparoscopic donor nephrectomy
