Renal Center

The kidneys stand out as among the most vital organs in our bodies, responsible for filtering and eliminating waste products. When the kidneys fail to function properly, their ability to remove waste declines. Without timely treatment, this can lead to a highly direful and potentially fatal condition such as kidney failure.

The silent threat of kidney disease is its ability to progress unnoticed. Symptoms manifest later as the condition progresses when the kidneys have sustained significant damage. Individuals dealing with either chronic or acute kidney disease commonly encounter indicators such as hematuria, facial or foot swelling, and fatigue. Moreover, risk factors for kidney disease encompass not only the intake of salty foods but also the consumption of highly processed foods, specific health conditions, and lifestyles. Therefore, maintaining regular health checkups, especially kidney function tests, and screenings for relevant diseases, becomes crucial.

In response to the high prevalence of kidney disease in Thailand, MedPark Hospital has established the Renal Center. This specialized medical facility is dedicated to offering comprehensive treatment for individuals with kidney disease, covering diagnosis, follow-up checkups, and care for those with stage-5 chronic kidney disease requiring hemodialysis. The center's treatment protocols are overseen by nephrologists who have received education and specialized training in the United States with certification from the American Board of Nephrology.

Alongside an experienced nursing team and multidisciplinary specialists, these nephrologists deliver exceptional care to kidney disease patients. Their collective goal is to assist patients in leading fulfilling lives despite their conditions, ensuring both physical and mental well-being. The specialists at the Renal Center, driven by extensive experience and dedication, utilize modern and highly effective medical technologies. The treatment center has been thoughtfully designed by physicians, ensuring patients receive efficient and expert care tailored to their specific medical needs.
