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.
