Nephrology is the medical specialty, which aims to prevents, diagnose and treat diseases of the kidneys. It is different from urology, a surgical specialty directed at the male genital apparatus and the urinary system (kidneys, bladder, prostate, urethra). The term nephrology originates from the Greek nephros (kidney) and logos (study). Numerous diseases affecting the kidneys are not limited to this organ, but are general diseases (atherosclerosis, diabetes, etc.)
