NEPHROLOGY

OVERVIEW

The Nephrology Department at Ford Hospital, Patna, takes care of the two super filters of the body – the Kidneys. The kidneys remove toxic chemicals from the blood and eliminates them, thus keeping the body clean and healthy. Besides this the kidneys also play the vital role of maintaining fluid balance and blood pressure of your body and secreting some important hormones. Thus undoubtedly, kidneys are vital organs.

We offer comprehensive services for the care of kidneys :
  •  Clinical Nephrology
  •  24-hour Dialysis Unit
  •  Long-term vascular access

Nephrology is a branch of internal medicine and pediatrics dealing with the study of the function and diseases of the kidney. Nephrology concerns the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases, including electrolyte disturbances and hypertension, and the care of those requiring renal replacement therapy, including dialysis and renal transplant patients. Many diseases affecting the kidney are systemic disorders not limited to the organ itself, and may require special treatment. Examples include acquired conditions such as systemic vasculitides (eg. ANCA vasculitis) and autoimmune diseases (e.g., lupus), as well as congenital or genetic conditions such as polycystic kidney disease.
