What is Nephrology​

Nephrology is a medical specialty that deals with the kidneys. Rising rates of non-communicable diseases such as hypertension, heart disease and diabetes often bring about other complications such as kidney disease. As malfunctioning kidneys spell long-term care and management, our team will help you look at holistic ways to arrest kidney failure and allow good quality of life. Using a well-established multidisciplinary approach, we ensure you are properly educated on kidney disease and how to care for yourself with minimal disruption to your daily routine.
