The division of Renal Medicine specialises in a wide range of renal disorders from early kidney disease to end stage renal disease. Our nephrologists work very closely with other healthcare professionals such as renal nurses, medical social workers, dieticians, pharmacists, therapists and coordinators as a multi-disciplinary team to provide a comprehensive, individualised and holistic model of care for our patients.
Our team of nephrologists will evaluate and manage patients with general renal issues such hypertension, glomerulonephritis, acute kidney injury and polycystic kidney diseases. Collaboration is made with endocrinologists in the management of patients with diabetic kidney disease aiming to retard kidney disease progression.
Chronic kidney disease education is available to equip patients with the knowledge to understand ways to slow down the progression of chronic kidney disease.
The care of patients with advanced chronic renal failure is managed very closely with nephrologists, renal coordinators, medical social workers, dieticians and Voluntary Welfare organisations such as National Kidney Foundation (NKF) and Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF), to prepare patients who are approaching end-stage kidney disease.
We are also trained in interventional nephrology procedures such as kidney biopsy, haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis catheter insertion and removal, vascular access ultrasonography and vascular access endovascular intervention.
