Nephrology

Nephrology is the segment of medicine that deals with the kidneys, their functioning, and disorders. The kidneys are a pair of bean-shaped organs situated below the rib cage, one on either side-the left and right of the spine, which perform the pivotal role of filtering blood and removing wastes, toxins, and excess water from the bloodstream, for subsequent elimination from the body in the form of urine. A multitude of renal diseases are rather prevalent presently, such as chronic kidney disease (CKD), glomerulonephritis, and kidney stones, to name a few.

Medway Hospital's Nephrology Department houses the finest team of proficient nephrologists who are doyens in treating several types of kidney-related disorders. The center is famed for carrying out numerous kidney transplants over the past ten years, recording a consistently high success rate. An expansive range of treatment procedures are offered, including Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) type of dialysis, emergency dialysis, and infection prevention. In addition, a certified legal team is available to investigate and facilitate kidney transplant procedures.
