Nephrology is a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and management of conditions that affect the kidneys. The kidneys are a pair of organs located in the back of the abdomen that filter waste products from the blood, balance electrolytes and fluids in the body, and produce hormones that regulate blood pressure and red blood cells.

The nephrologists at SRV Hospitals are medical doctors who have completed specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of kidney-related conditions. They use a variety of techniques to diagnose and treat conditions such as chronic kidney disease (CKD), acute kidney injury (AKI), nephrotic syndrome, and kidney stones. In addition to medication and surgery, nephrologists also use non-surgical treatments such as dialysis, lifestyle changes, and dietary modifications.

Nephrology is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the kidneys and urinary system. Some of the conditions that are covered under nephrology include:

Chronic kidney disease (CKD)

A progressive and irreversible condition in which the kidneys gradually lose function over time, often due to diabetes, high blood pressure, or other underlying health conditions.

Acute kidney injury (AKI)

A sudden and often reversible condition in which the kidneys stop working properly, often due to infections, medications, or other factors.

Glomerular diseases

A group of conditions that affect the small blood vessels (glomeruli) in the kidneys, leading to inflammation and damage.

Nephrotic syndrome

A condition in which the kidneys leak large amounts of protein into the urine, leading to swelling (edema) and other symptoms.

Kidney stones

Small, hard deposits of minerals and salts that can form in the kidneys and cause pain and other symptoms.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs)

These infections can occur anywhere in the urinary tract, including the bladder, kidneys, and urethra.

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD)

A genetic condition in which cysts (fluid-filled sacs) develop in the kidneys and can eventually lead to kidney failure.

Hypertension (high blood pressure)

A common condition that can damage the kidneys over time, leading to CKD and other complications.

Autoimmune diseases

A group of conditions in which the immune system attacks the body’s own tissues, including the kidneys.

Nephrologists are specially trained to diagnose and treat these and other conditions related to the kidneys and urinary system, using a variety of techniques and tools such as blood tests, urine tests, imaging studies, and medications. In some cases, they may also recommend dialysis or kidney transplantation to help manage kidney failure.


Symptoms of kidney-related conditions can vary depending on the specific condition and the severity of the disease. Some common symptoms include:

Advance Treatments with SRV Hospital

Treatment for kidney-related conditions will depend on the specific condition and the severity of the disease. Some common treatments recommended by SRV Hospital include:

Medications: These can include blood pressure and diabetes medications to slow the progression of kidney disease, diuretics to remove excess fluid, and antibiotics to treat infections.

Dialysis: This is a procedure that uses a machine to filter waste products from the blood when the kidneys are not able to do so.

Surgery: This can include procedures such as kidney transplant or removal of kidney stones.

Lifestyle changes: This can include changes to diet, exercise and other lifestyle factors to slow the progression of kidney disease and to manage symptoms.

Non-surgical procedures: These can include lifestyle changes, dietary modifications, physical therapy, and medications to manage symptoms.


Some common conditions treated by nephrologists at SRV Hospital include chronic kidney disease (CKD), acute kidney injury (AKI), nephrotic syndrome, kidney stones, glomerulonephritis, and polycystic kidney disease (PKD).

In some cases, kidney disease can be prevented by controlling risk factors such as diabetes and high blood pressure, and by making lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly.

You should see a nephrologist at SRV Hospitals if you have symptoms of kidney disease such as swelling in the legs, ankles or feet, fatigue, difficulty urinating or blood in the urine, or if you have been diagnosed with a condition that puts you at risk for kidney disease such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
