When your kidneys aren’t functioning normally and you can’t eliminate urine from your body naturally, your doctor may recommend you undergo a nephrostomy. A nephrostomy uses an artificial opening in your kidney to allow urine to be drained to the outside of your body, bypassing your bladder.
The interventional radiology experts at the University of Miami Health System are highly experienced in performing nephrostomy and exchange procedures to help your body function properly again.
