Renal biopsy is the surgical procedure where a small piece of kidney is removed for microscopic examination. The study of the biopsy needed to diagnose or treat problems of the kidney. Some kidney problems can often be found with blood and urine tests, a sonogram or other special x-rays, and a physical exam rather than a biopsy. But in some individuals with certain types of kidney disease, and those with a kidney transplant that is not working well, a correct diagnosis can only be made with a kidney biopsy.
