The Koru Hospital Nephrology Department is a specialized unit that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of kidney-related conditions. Our department is staffed by experienced nephrologists and a dedicated team of healthcare professionals who are committed to providing high-quality care to our patients.
The Nephrology Department at Koru Hospital provides comprehensive care for patients with kidney diseases, including acute and chronic kidney failure, glomerulonephritis, nephrotic syndrome, hypertension and hemodialysis.
One of the primary tools used by our nephrologists to diagnose kidney problems is a thorough medical history and physical exam, which can help identify any underlying conditions or risk factors. Additional diagnostic tests that may be used include blood and urine tests to evaluate kidney function and detect any abnormalities, as well as imaging tests such as ultrasounds, CT scans, or MRIs to assess the size and structure of the kidneys.
Another important diagnostic tool used by our team is kidney biopsy, a procedure in which a small sample of kidney tissue is removed and examined under a microscope. This can help identify the underlying cause of kidney disease and guide treatment decisions.
Once a diagnosis is made, our nephrologists work closely with other specialists as needed to develop an individualized treatment plan for each patient. Treatment options may include medication(immunosuppressant drugs and conservative treatment), dietary changes, and in some cases, dialysis or kidney transplant.
At the Koru Hospital Nephrology Department, we offer a wide range of services to diagnose and treat kidney diseases. Our team uses state-of-the-art technology and equipment to provide accurate diagnoses and effective treatment plans for our patients.
Some of the kidney-related conditions that we diagnose and treat include:
Chronic kidney disease: This is a long-term condition in which the kidneys lose function over time. We work with our patients to manage the disease and prevent further kidney damage.
Acute kidney injury: This is a sudden loss of kidney function that can be caused by a number of factors. Our team provides prompt evaluation and treatment to help prevent further kidney damage.
Glomerulonephritis: This is a condition in which the tiny filters in the kidneys become inflamed and damaged. We provide comprehensive care to manage the disease and help our patients maintain kidney function.
Kidney stones: These are hard mineral deposits that form in the kidneys and can cause severe pain. We offer various treatment options, including medication and minimally invasive procedures, to help remove the stones and prevent future occurrences.
Our goal at the Koru Hospital Nephrology Department is to provide our patients with the highest level of care and support. We believe in a patient-centered approach and work closely with our patients to develop personalized treatment plans that meet their unique needs. If you are experiencing kidney-related symptoms or have been diagnosed with a kidney condition, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with our experienced nephrologists.
