Episode 172: Kidney Biopsy Procedure: What is a kidney biopsy, what is learned from a kidney biopsy, and more. A kidney biopsy is a procedure to remove a small piece of kidney tissue that can be examined under a microscope for signs of damage or disease. A Nephrologist may recommend a kidney biopsy — also called renal biopsy — to diagnose a suspected kidney problem. It may also be used to see how serious a kidney condition is, or to monitor treatment for kidney disease. You may also need a kidney biopsy if you've had a kidney transplant that's not working properly. Dr. Qasim Butt walks through understanding a kidney biopsy procedure, why they are important, what can be learned from them, and answers your questions.
