Surgery for Renal Disease

The kidneys are two bean shaped organs whose function is essential to life.  The kidneys are located on either side of the spine behind the abdominal organs and below the rib cage.  The kidneys perform several major functions. Filtration of the blood to remove waste products from normal body functions, passing the waste from the body as urine, and returning water and chemicals back to the body as necessary, Regulation of the blood pressure by releasing several hormones, Stimulation of production of red blood cells by releasing the hormone erythropoietin. The kidneys produce urine, which is then carried to the bladder by the ureters. The bladder serves as a storehouse for the urine. When the body senses that the bladder is full, the urine is excreted from the bladder through the urethra.
