Department of Nephrology

Welcome to the Department of Nephrology at Kothari Medical Centre. It is a leading facility for kidney health and renal care. Our dedicated team of skilled nephrologists and healthcare professionals is committed to diagnosing, treating, and managing a wide range of kidney-related conditions. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology and a patient-centered approach, we strive to provide comprehensive solutions for kidney diseases and dialysis.


Nephro Care

Diagnosis and Treatment

Diagnosis of disorders like chronic kidney disease (CKD), acute kidney injury (AKI), glomerulonephritis, kidney stones, and other renal-related conditions are done by utilising the most recent medical innovations and diagnostic equipment.


We provide hemodialysis services for patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) or severe kidney failure.

Peritoneal Dialysis

As an additional kidney replacement therapy option for hemodialysis, we also offer peritoneal dialysis. With this approach, patients can manage their dialysis treatments with more freedom and flexibility.

Diabetic Nephropathy

Kidney disease is primarily brought on by diabetes. For patients with diabetic nephropathy, our department offers specialised care with the goal of delaying disease development and avoiding complications.

Management of Glomerular Disease

Glomerular illnesses are conditions that affect the glomeruli, which are small filtering organs in the kidneys. Diagnose and treat diseases like glomerulonephritis and nephrotic syndrome by nephrologists

Management of the Body's Electrolyte and Fluid Balance

Nephrologists assist in the management of the body's electrolyte and fluid imbalances, which are essential for preserving healthy kidney function and overall wellbeing.

Management of Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)

Nephrologists treat patients with PKD, a hereditary condition in which the kidneys develop fluid-filled cysts.

Nephrology is a branch of medicine that specialises in identifying and treating conditions that affect the kidneys. Our hospital’s Department of Nephrology is an expert in offering patients with kidney disorders, from early-stage kidney issues to end-stage renal disease, comprehensive care.

If you encounter symptoms like persistently high blood pressure, changes in urine colour or frequency, swelling in the hands and feet, unexplained exhaustion, or a family history of kidney disease, you should think about seeing a nephrologist. Early evaluation is crucial to preventing further kidney damage.

While peritoneal dialysis uses the peritoneal membrane in the belly to filter blood, hemodialysis requires utilising a machine to do it outside of the body. While peritoneal dialysis enables patients to do treatments at home, hemodialysis is typically performed at a dialysis facility.

Dietary advice is individualised based on the conditions of each patient by our nephrologists in close collaboration with nutritionists. Typical dietary modifications could involve consuming less salt, potassium, phosphorus, and protein while still getting enough nourishment.

Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) whose kidney function has declined to the point that dialysis is no longer sufficient to preserve health are given the option of a kidney transplant. A healthy kidney from a living or deceased donor is substituted for a sick kidney during a transplant.

Kidney issues can be avoided by leading a healthy lifestyle. This entails drinking plenty of water, eating a balanced diet, managing blood pressure and blood sugar, limiting salt intake, and quitting smoking. Kidney health can also be improved by engaging in regular exercise and avoiding overusing pharmaceuticals like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Chronic kidney disease (CKD), kidney stones, glomerulonephritis, renal hypertension, electrolyte imbalances, kidney infections, and kidney failure (end-stage renal disease, or ESRD) are just a few of the ailments that the nephrology department tackles.
