Opening Hours : Outpatients Department: Mon to Sat - 8am to 5pm
Our personnel in this department specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with diseases that affect the kidney.Diseases that affect the kidney include:
Nephrologists also see patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) when only the kidney is affected (for example, following certain drug reactions) and also AKI as part of multi-system failure resulting, for example, from septicaemia (blood poisoning).
They also manage patients with end-stage kidney failure either by dialysis or by kidney transplantation. Nephrologists manage acutely ill patients and those with a chronic disease requiring long term care with the help of colleagues in a multidisciplinary team. A patient, for example, may progress to renal failure and require dialysis and subsequently a renal transplant over a period of 10 to 20 years.
