About Brooklyn Nephrologist and Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Svetlana Pyatigorskaya
Nephrology deals with medical issues of your kidneys. As a board-certified nephrologist, Svetlana Pyatigorskaya, MD, most often offers non-surgical procedures to treat your kidney ailments. Since she’s also an internal medicine specialist, she acts as a primary care physician at the Century Dental and Medical Center.
Because of her dual specialties, Dr. Pyatigorskaya treats a large number of health conditions, not all of them involving kidney functions. You can see her for common health issues, such as cold and flu symptoms, headaches and sports injuries. But as a nephrologist, she does treat kidney conditions, such as:
- Chronic kidney disease
- Kidney stones
- Acid-base or electrolyte disorders
- Hematuria or blood in your urine
Performing a Variety of Treatments
As with all the doctors at the Century Medical Dental Center, Dr. Pyatigorskaya performs a variety of procedures, as needed. She diagnoses your issue and can rely on multiple other specialties under the same roof. Some of her most common kidney procedures include dialysis and renal replacement therapy.
She also treats acute kidney failure, which is life-threatening. In severe cases, she may perform a kidney transplant. And no matter what treatment you undergo, she administers appropriate medications to support your body while your kidney recovers.
A Well-Rounded Education
Dr. Pyatigorskaya received her undergraduate degree from Hunter College in New York City. Then she obtained her Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree from the Ross University School of Medicine.
