There is a large unmet need in pediatric nephrology in India. Very few children with renal problems actually consult a pediatric nephrologist. There is a lack of knowledge among the public & doctors about pediatric kidney ailments. As a pediatric nephrologist, Dr. Nitin aims to create awareness among the general public, pediatricians & also other doctors who regularly manage children regarding the renal problems that afflict children, the various presentations of the same, tools for early identification, and the various treatment options available. He intends to develop pediatric nephrology as a specialty at NU hospital so that in conjunction with the pediatric-urology team, the vast unmet need in these fields can be addressed.
Dr. Nitin is a life member of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics & Indian Society of Pediatric Nephrology & a member of the International Pediatric Nephrology Association.
Dr. Nitin has developed a special interest in tubular disorders. His other fields of interest are chronic kidney disease & pediatric hypertension. Nutrition and Immunization in children with renal disease is another area of interest. He firmly believes that a firm basis in general pediatrics is essential for the practice of pediatric nephrology.
Dr. Nitin has done his Diploma in Child Health & DNB in Pediatrics. He has obtained a Fellowship in Pediatric Nephrology (RGUHS)from St. John’s Medical College Bangalore, which is among the very few centers offering such training in India. He has independently managed children with the difficult nephrotic syndrome, acute nephritis, renal vasculitis, acute kidney injury & chronic kidney disease. He has monitored children on both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. He is competent in procedures such as renal biopsies, acute peritoneal dialysis & hemodialysis catheter insertions. He has worked up patients for renal transplant and followed them up after the transplant.
Dr. Nitin is conversant in 5 Indian languages and believes that communicating with patients in their mother-tongue helps in building a good rapport with them. A cheerful countenance, diligence, compassion and clear communication are his strengths.
