Patients are referred to nephrology specialists for various reasons, such as

  • Acute renal failure, a sudden loss of renal function
  • Electrolyte disorders or acid/base imbalance
  • Hematuria, blood loss in the urine
  • Proteinuria, the loss of protein especially albumin in the urine
  • Kidney stones, usually only recurrent stone formers.
  • Chronic or recurrent urinary tract infections
  • Chronic kidney disease, declining renal function, usually with an inexorable rise in creatinine.
  • Hypertension that has failed to respond to multiple forms of anti-hypertensive medication or could have a secondary cause

Other tests often performed by nephrologists are

  • Renal biopsy, to obtain a tissue diagnosis of a disorder when the exact nature or stage remains uncertain.
  • Ultrasound scanning of the urinary tract and occasionally examining the renal blood vessels.
  • CT scanning when mass lesions are suspected or to help diagnosis nephrolithiasis.
  • Angiography or Magnetic resonance imaging angiography when the blood vessels might be affected.
  • Scintigraphy (nuclear medicine) for accurate measurement of renal function (rarely done), and MAG3 scans for diagnosis of renal artery disease or ‘split function’ of each kidney.

Alpha Hospitals offer post-surgical end-to-end care and support for treatments of kidney cancer, prostate cancer, kidney transplant, and kidney failure. The minimally invasive surgeries ensure minimal postoperative recovery time and hospitalization along with rehabilitation for strict monitoring of patients undergoing kidney transplant surgery.
