Welcome to National Kidney & Prostate Clinic
1 Nephrology is the medical management of renal disorders
2 These doctors are MD in medicine and then DNB or DM in nephrology
3 We have DR Smartya Pulai MD DM and DR Tanmoy Mukhopadhyay MD DNB as our nephrologist at NKPC
4 At Baghajatin NKPC diagnostics we have Dr Sandip Bhattacharya MD DM and Dr Arunangshu Banerjee MD DM as our senior Nephrologists
5 These physicians mostly manage medical renal disease, wherein the kidney has shrunken and shows altered echotexture.
6 When chronic renal disease progresses then these doctors advise the initiation of hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis as deemed suitable for the case.
7 In case the patient needs maintenance hemodialysis then the nephrologist may counsel the patient regarding kidney transplantation.
8 kidney transplantation means, the donation of a kidney from another individual to the recipient, a person whose both kidneys are non-functional.
9 Nephrologist also has a role in acute kidney injury caused by sepsis or toxins or drug induced kidney damage.
10 Nephropathys are a wide range of disorders which can be initiated by auto-immune reaction. The immune system is the defense system of the body, but if it hyper-reacts then it can attack these individual’s own kidneys, resulting in renal damage. These individuals are also treated by the nephrologist.
