The Nephrology  Department at  Kalsekar Hospital in kausa, Mumbra  is a multidisciplinary patient care team providing advanced treatment for short-term and long-term kidney disease. Our team consists of accredited nephrologists working in combination with nutritionists, pharmacists and clinical nurse coordinators to review and assist all aspects of your lifestyle to help detect and treat kidney based illnesses.
Nephrology is the branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases including electrolyte disturbances and hypertension, as well as the care of those patients who require renal replacement therapy, including dialysis and renal transplant patients. Most disorders affecting the kidney are not limited to the organ itself, but are systemic disorders, and may require special treatment, such as systemic vasculitides or other autoimmune diseases, such as lupus.

Conditions We Treat

  • Acute renal failure
  • Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
  • Electrolyte and acid-base abnormalities
  • Genetic and non-genetic renal diseases (e.g., polycystic kidney disease, Alport’s syndrome, glomerulonephritis, end-stage renal disease)
  • Hypertension and diabetes based kidney complications

It is important to note that hypertension and diabetes are the most common causes of kidney failure. It is very important to control hypertension and diabetes to slow down chronic kidney disease. Often Chronic kidney disease will also lead to hypertension.


Renal: : Another word for “kidney”, from the Latin word “ren” meaning kidneys, used as an adjective.
Dialysis: : A process of cleaning waste and other unwanted substances from blood.
Apheresis: : A process of taking out only certain parts of a patient’s blood, and returning the rest to the same patient.

    • Urine microalbumin/creatinine ratio

Urinalysis and review of urinary sediment (for the detection of chronic kidney disease and the identification of the type of kidney disease)

Treatment Services

Facilities and Equipment

  • Private examination rooms
  • Treatment rooms for minor procedures
