'Powered by knowledge, driven by values' is the motto of the Nephrology Department. This is reflected in the facultys' and students' approach to this discipline. Students are trained to recognize and treat kidney diseases and kidney failure at the earlier stages, preventing the progression of kidney disease, as per guidelines issued by National Kidney Foundation in the USA. Our faculty members continually update themselves at national and international forums to stay updated on the latest developments in this field.


Currently a project to study the epidemiology of renal calculus disease in and around Kattankulathur is underway along with the Urology Department. Another study, recently concluded, examines nail growth in chronic kidney disease. These studies offer vast opportunities in epidemiological study of chronic kidney disease identification in the community.
