Our Specialization in Nephrology
One of the key specialties at Vikram Hospitals is Nephrology. We understand the critical importance of kidney health and are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for patients with kidney disorders. Nephrology, a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of kidney-related conditions, is a vital component of our healthcare services
Nephrology is the medical specialty that deals with the study of the kidneys and the treatment of kidney diseases. Kidneys play a crucial role in maintaining the body’s overall health by filtering waste products and excess fluids from the blood to form urine. Nephrologists are highly trained physicians who diagnose and treat various kidney disorders, ranging from kidney stones and infections to chronic kidney disease (CKD) and kidney failure.
