We offer care for children
As a Pediatric Nephrologists, I treat children with renal ailments.
Pediatric Nephrology allows me to practice across the entire spectrum of pediatric illness, from perinatal / neonatal conditions, congenital anomalies of the kidneys and urinary tract, inherited kidney disorders including genetic syndromes, fluid and electrolyte disorders, acid base disorders, Nephrotic syndrome. Renal stone disease, hypertension, acute critical care including care of children with acute and chronic kidney disorders, acute and chronic kidney failure, children during and after kidney transplantation.
We provide personalized care to every child and each child is different and I am happy to continuously follow each patient and support their family as a whole. Children are not customers, their health is our priority and responsibility. We are more than providers. I am privileged to have the honor and responsibility for their care, to cure their diseases and to help them maintain good health.
I have always realized Children can fall ill quickly, but with good care they recover fast and completely. It’s very rewarding to see such sick children transform into a healthier kid as a result of our good care in association with their family. Chronically ill children that require long-term follow up are also managed by us. This allows physicians to develop meaningful, lasting relationships with families as they transition from chronic kidney disease to dialysis and then transplant. As a pediatric nephrologists I have no paucity of children who require our care but these children needs channelization for better care and follow up till the course of adolescents. I strongly believe that patients always come first and that patient care is job one.
I am proud and privileged to begin my Practice at Dr Mehta’s hospital under the mentorship of Dr.BR Nammalwar and Late Dr.M.Vijayakumar. My love for Pediatric nephrology is been sowed and groomed by the stalwarts in the field and that keeps my journey going. I am grateful to them for instigating the fire in me. As a relatively small subspecialty, there is a real spirit of collegiality and fellowship among the practitioners in our discipline.
As a healthcare worker we are commitment to the social responsibility of creating health awareness among general public. To honor this commitment the Department of Pediatric Nephrology at our Institution participates in the World Kidney Day every year.
We, as health care workers pledge that “The best means to fight chronic kidney disease is prevention: it is thus paramount to identify and to treat possible and preventable risk factors, but reversing the tide will require concerted efforts not just from healthcare providers, but from the entire society.
Our aim is to promote research knowledge of pediatric nephrology through teaching, scientific meetings and other methods, for the benefit of children with renal disease. We also continuously pursue clinical excellence with our innovative research.
