Alteration or dysfunction to the anatomy or physiology of the kidney can lead to renal diseases that could seriously affect the entire body's functioning. The Nephrology Department provides comprehensive patient care for a spectrum of acute and chronic kidney diseases. Our nephrologists also treat other associated conditions like fluid retention, kidney failure, nephrotic syndrome, lupus nephritis, polycystic kidney disorder, pyelonephritis, renal insufficiency, diabetic kidney disorder, amyloidosis, glomerulonephritis, high blood pressure, and mineral and electrolyte imbalances. 

At UMMC, we use cutting-edge technology to diagnose conditions or diseases associated with the kidneys and a team of skilled and dedicated nephrologists, nurses, and paramedic staff. Our experts provide top-notch treatment to the patients and maintain their kidney health through various non-invasive procedures. The patients have access to the nephrologists who work closely with the multidisciplinary support staff of endocrinologists, cardiologists, nurses, dieticians, physiotherapists, and pharmacists.

The patient care services provided by our Nephrology Department cover all aspects of diagnosis and management of renal diseases. The scope of care includes all stages of kidney disease, from the earliest detectable changes of kidney function to end-stage kidney disease.
