Kidney Diseases

The purpose of the urinary system is to filter blood and produce urine as a waste by-product. The kidneys, renal pelvis, ureters, bladder, and urethra are all organs of the urinary system. The urinary system’s functions include waste elimination, blood volume and blood pressure regulation, electrolyte and metabolite control, and blood pH regulation. Urology and Nephrology are two subspecialties that deal with the disorders of the urinary system.

Urologists specialize in difficulties involving the bladder, penis, testicles, urinary tract, and male reproductive system, whereas nephrologists focus on disorders involving the kidneys. Because nephrologists and urologists both treat kidney-related illnesses, it’s easy to mix up a nephrologist’s and a urologist’s services. These medical specializations sometimes overlap, and you may need to see both for the same problem.

Medica Superspecialty Hospital, Kolkata is one of the finest centers in the entire region and houses some of the best urologists and nephrologists of Kolkata. We offer advanced care and treatment in all types of urological and nephrological disorders, all clubbed under one super speciality, Kidney Diseases.
