Centre for nephrology is dedicated to the understanding of kidney diseases, their development, progression, treatment and prevention. Pursuit of excellence in patient care through the improvement of the understanding of disease processes and development of new strategies in the treatment of individuals with kidney disease is our primary goal.
Nephrology is a medical discipline that covers the diagnosis, treatment and management of kidney diseases. Commonly treated disorders include kidney stones and kidney failure. Nephrology also involves comprehensive care for kidney diseases associated with other illnesses and conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes.
Specialized nephrologists at Mercy Hospital supported by well-trained nursing staff are experts in handling patients with kidney disease. The Nephrology Centre got equipped with an independent dialysis unit, recently. It provides a full range of renal services including hospital hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and care for transplant recipients.
