Nephrology concerns the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases, including electrolyte disturbances and hypertension, and the care of those requiring renal replacement therapy, including dialysis patients. Many diseases affecting the kidney are systemic disorders not limited to the organ itself, and may require special treatment. Examples include acquired conditions such as systemic vasculitides (e.g. ANCA vasculitis) and autoimmune diseases (e.g., lupus), as well as congenital or genetic conditions such as polycystic kidney disease.
Patients are referred to Nephrology specialists for various reasons, such as acute renal failure, chronic kidney disease, hematuria, proteinuria, kidney stones, hypertension, and disorders of acid/base or electrolytes.
Kidney disease and hypertension are not uncommon conditions for children to face but at Nirmal Hospital Pvt. Ltd., our Division of Pediatric Nephrology has the expertise and technology to give children facing these conditions the medical care and compassion they need. We provide diagnostic and treatment services for infants, children and adolescents with conditions such as kidney stones, congenital or acquired kidney disease, and hypertension (high blood pressure).
