Your kidneys are one of the most vital organs of the human body. They are responsible for filtering blood and excreting wastes from the body in the form of urine. Any disorders in the kidney can result in acute and chronic conditions. The disorders of the renal system can be classified into renal infections, problems with urination, and renal failures. Kidney stones are the commonest kidney problem. The symptoms of renal diseases are usually not apparent untill they have reached an advanced stage. These symptoms vary from puffiness surrounding the eyes, swelling in the feet and the hands, and painful and frequent urination. The existence of protein or blood in the urine and high blood pressure are also seen with some disorders. The blood investigations usually reveal normal levels of blood urea nitrogen and creatinine.
The nephrological conditions treated in the department include hematuria, hypertension, electrolyte disorders, kidney cancers, kidney failure, urinary tract infections, acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease, polycystic kidney disease, diabetic nephropathy, and kidney stones, and reflux and obstructive nephropathies. Our services include management of kidney stones and urinary tract infections, a multi-disciplinary approach for managing chronic kidney disease, kidney transplant and biopsy procedures, and dialysis services, including hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Apart from this, the department houses a rheumatology-nephrology clinic and cardio-renal syndrome clinic to deal with relevant diseases using a collaborative approach.
