Nephrology is a medical specialty which deals with function and diseases related to kidneys. Kidneys are the filtering units of the body, and on average, a healthy adult kidney can process about 180 liters of blood daily and can dispose of extra water and waste from the urine. Any dysfunction or alteration in the kidney's physiology and anatomy can cause acute or chronic renal kidney diseases.

The Department of Nephrology at UMMC maintains expertise in managing the consequences of impaired kidney functionality. It offers comprehensive care to patients across the spectrum of acute and chronic kidney disorders, including dialysis and kidney transplant. 

The nephrologist’s team at the UMMC offers treatment to all categories of patients ranging from children to adults. They offer the most advanced diagnostic, preoperative evaluation, dialysis support, and complete post-operative care. Our specialists are experts in performing kidney transplants. The team also works with other departments such as pediatric specialists to manage kidney disorders in children and adolescents. They create a patient-centric environment and provide high-quality care for patients with kidney dysfunctions.
