Nephrology

Over the last few years, medical conditions that affect the kidneys have seen a marked increase in occurrence. Studies indicate that approximately 17 percent of urban India is currently affected by some form of kidney-related ailment, with many more cases surfacing daily. The kidneys are vital for life. They maintain the fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base regulation that are altered by several disease conditions as well as drugs and toxins.

Apollo Clinic is dedicated to treating and supporting patients with rare kidney diseases, including end-stage kidney disease, kidney stones, polycystic kidney disease, glomerular disease, hypertensive renal disease and chronic kidney disease, their treatment, progression, development, and prevention.

  • Urine abnormalities- excess excretion of protein, sugar, blood, casts, crystals etc.
  • Glomerular disorders - affect the small filtering systems of the kidneys called the glomerulus
  • Renal vascular diseases- affect the blood vessel networks within the kidneys
