Nephrology, a highly specialized field of medicine, focuses on addressing kidney-related conditions. The kidneys play a pivotal role in sustaining human life by filtering excess water and metabolic waste products from the bloodstream. They are also responsible for regulating fluid balance, electrolytes, acid-base levels, and blood pressure, as well as contributing to the production of red blood cells and the maintenance of strong bones. Nevertheless, these vital functions can be disrupted by a variety of diseases, medications, and toxins.
At DVC Hospital & Research Centre, our Department of Nephrology is staffed by expert kidney care specialists, known as Nephrologists, who possess the expertise to identify and manage both primary and secondary causes of kidney-related issues. We evaluate urine abnormalities, including excessive protein, sugar, blood, casts, crystals, and irregular urination, to pinpoint the underlying problems and formulate treatment strategies aimed at correcting, halting, and restoring kidney function. Our comprehensive range of services encompasses a wide spectrum of conditions, such as acute and chronic kidney diseases, renal biopsies, nephritis, kidney stones, infections, inherited kidney disorders, drug-induced renal complications, the management of electrolyte imbalances (sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus), urinary tract infections, and more.
