We mainly specialize in the treatment of:

  • acute conditions (acute glomerulonephritis, nephrotic syndromes)
  • chronic diseases (chronic glomerulonephritis, chronic renal failure)

Together with urologists we treat severe urinary system defects, we provide comprehensive treatment of urolithiasis and diagnostics of arterial hypertension (Ultrasound and Doppler examination of the vessels, angio CT examination of the vessels and MR of the vessels).

We cooperate with the Department of Neonatal Intensive Care and Pathology as far as the treatment of complicated defects of the urinary system is concerned, and with the Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care in the scope of renal replacement therapy provided for patients suffering from acute renal failure and after cardiosurgical procedures.

Each year over 2000 patients are admitted to the Clinic of Nephrology to be treated by our specialists.
