Leading Nephrologists In Kolkata

Overview

Nephrology is primarily a medical discipline housed by paediatric medicine which deals with the ailments of the kidneys, right from diagnosis to cure. Nephrology also examines the systemic disorders that affect the kidneys, like hypertension and osteodystrophy. There are certain conditions known as acquired diseases where the illness is not only restricted within the organ and may require critical care. Such conditions include but are not limited to ANCA vasculitis, lupus, and genetic / congenital illnesses. If you are looking for a nephrologist in Kolkata, come to Fortis Hospitals.

Diseases & Treatment

A patient is usually made to undergo a urinalysis test before being sent to the nephrology department. If you are looking for the top nephrologist in Kolkata, come to Fortis.

This urinalysis test is done to check for:

  • Chronic kidney disease 
  • Haematuria
  • Kidney stones
  • Acute kidney failure 
  • Hypertension etc.

A nephrologist may be an expert in any of the sub-specialties such as kidney transplants, cancer-related kidney diseases, procedural nephrology, and / or dialysis. We house some of the best kidney specialists in Kolkata.

A normal treatment regime could involve a range of procedures that the doctor may use based on the condition of the patient. The doctor may begin with a variety of tests such as:

  • Basic blood tests which can be used to check parameters such as haemoglobin, platelets, PTH, etc.
  • GFR test which is used to measure the serum creatinine concentration

The doctor may even prescribe imaging tests if he / she suspects any structural abnormalities. The range of imaging tests available with a nephrologist include Computed Axial Tomography, Angiography / MRI, USG / Ultrasound, and Scintigraphy. In certain scenarios, a doctor may find it absolutely necessary to opt for an invasive procedure to do a fruitful diagnosis such as by doing a kidney biopsy or renal biopsy. 

For all kidney-related disorder in children, Fortis has the top paediatric nephrologists in Kolkata.

In case of chronic kidney disease, it would be treated by curing by the conditions which cause it, one of the most common conditions being diabetes, or by avoiding elements harmful to the kidneys, antihypertensives, weight and food modification, and / or managing an end stage renal failure. 

Vasculitis is a kind of inflammatory (or Auto-immune) kidney disease which is usually treated using immunosuppression. It uses agents like mycophenolate, ciclosporin, prednisone, cyclophosphamide, tacrolimus, sirolimus, thymoglobulin, and everolimus.
