The Department of Renal medicine at Sengkang General Hospital is a dynamic department providing a 24/7 care for patients with all types of kidney diseases. The dedicated multidisciplinary team including experienced doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dieticians and social workers offers comprehensive, customised and holistic care to patients, actively involving them and their caregivers in the decision making. There is also a state-of-the-art, purpose-built haemodialysis centre to help patients who need haemodialysis support. They also provide peritoneal dialysis service to patients with end-stage kidney disease who are suitable for this form of home therapy. The team also offers well-structured multidisciplinary care to elderly patients with end-stage kidney disease who opt for conservative treatment.
