Dr Nicky Kumar

Consultant Nephrologist

MBChB MD(Res) Dip (Med Ed) FRCP

Specialises in

I am a leading London consultant nephrologist with special interests in dialysis, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, renovascular disease and early detection and management of kidney disease (nephropathy). I am currently a consultant nephrologist at Guy's and St Thomas's Hospital and the Spire Hospital in Tunbridge Wells. I have extensive experience in treating kidney patients with over 10 years at consultant level.

My consultation style aims to address the individual needs of my patients and to provide advice on patient specific investigations and treatment.

After graduating from Aberdeen University, I completed my training in some of London's top teaching hospitals. I was awarded a diploma in medical education from University College London and went on to hold the role of training programme director for core medical training at Guys' and St Thomas's Hospital between 2015 and 2018, and am still very involved in training junior doctors.
