Kidney treatments

We offer a range of effective treatments and tests to help keep your body filtering system in balance.

Our kidney's filter out the waste in our blood and eliminates it through urine. The kidney system can be affected by a range of disorders including hypertension (high blood pressure), kidney stones and kidney disease.

The health of our kidneys is vital to our everyday enjoyment of life. When they misfunction, or become damaged, it can have a real negative impact on the quality of life.

Is kidney or bladder treatment for you?

Urinary problems are uncomfortable and sometimes painful and embarrassing for people, so we understand your desire to have them treated quickly and thoroughly. If your doctor has concerns about your kidneys or bladder, we can help you with straightforward blood and urine tests as well as other diagnostic tests to check that they are working well. These tests can help to diagnose liver disease and liver cirrhosis, kidney disease, kidney infections, bladder problems, urinary tract infections and other diseases. We also provide effective, specialised treatment to help remove kidney stones and gallstones.
