DIVISION OF PEDIATRIC NEPHROLOGY
The division, established in early 1970s, provides advanced care for
patients with disorders of the kidneys and urinary tract.
The division caters to more than 650 new patients with renal diseases
every year. Facilities are available for acute and chronic
peritoneal and hemodialysis, and renal transplantation.
Other activities of the Division are:
Training in Pediatric Nephrology through short term training
programs, CME, and training courses.
Clinical research in pathogenesis and treatment of nephrotic
syndrome, hypertension, vasculitis, renal tubular disorders
and urinary tract infection.
