TOP MEDICAL SPECIALITIES OFFERED BY FORTIS ESCORTS HOSPITAL, AMRITSAR • Chronic Kidney Disease • Male Infertility • Ventricular Septal Defect • CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE Chronic kidney disease is a condition in which the kidney gradually fails to function. Your kidneys are supposed to filter excess fluids and waste products from your blood, which are then excreted in urine. In chronic kidney disease, your kidneys fail to perform this function which leads to the build-up of a dangerous amount of fluid, electrolytes, and wastes in the body. Chronic kidney disease is caused by multiple diseases such as polycystic kidney disease, type 1 or type 2 diabetes, uncontrolled high blood pressure, prolonged urinary tract obstruction, recurrent kidney infection, and conditions that cause inflammation of the kidneys. If your chronic kidney disease is not treated on time, it can progress to end-stage kidney failure, which can be fatal without dialysis or a kidney transplant. In the early stages of chronic kidney disease, you may have a few nonspecific signs or symptoms, but as the disease progresses, your symptoms might become worse. If you develop chronic kidney disease, you may experience loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, sleep problems, fatigue, altered mental status, itching, muscle twitches, and cramps, swelling of the ankles and feet. Some other symptoms include chest pain, shortness of breath, or high blood pressure. If you have any signs or symptoms of kidney disease, you should set an appointment with a specialist at Fortis Escorts Hospital, Amritsar. The specialist will discuss your present clinical complaints, personal and family history with you. Your doctor will then perform a physical exam relevant to your complaints. The doctor might also advise some relevant tests such as urine tests, blood tests, imagining tests, and kidney tissue biopsy. Once you are diagnosed, your doctor will treat you for chronic kidney disease. At Fortis Escorts Hospital, Amritsar, your doctor will focus on treating the underlying cause. They will also treat you to relieve the signs and symptoms, reduce complications, and slow the progression of the kidney disease. If your kidneys are severely damaged, your doctor will treat you for end-stage kidney disease and kidney failure. After initiating the treatment, your doctor will regularly follow up with you and repeat tests at regular intervals to see the progression of the disease. If your kidneys are unable to efficiently clear the waste and fluid on their own, your doctor may recommend dialysis or a kidney transplant. • MALE INFERTILITY Infertility is when the couple is not able to conceive a child after having frequent, unprotected sexual intercourse for one year or longer. Both male and female factors play a role. Male factors cause infertility in up to half of these couples. Male infertility can be caused by low sperm count, abnormal sperm function, or blockage in the tracts that prevent the delivery of sperm. There are many illnesses, infections, injuries, long-term health problems, and lifestyle choices that can contribute to male infertility. You should see a doctor at Fortis Escorts Hospital, Amritsar, if you are unable to conceive a child after one year of regular, unprotected sexual intercourse. You can see your doctor sooner if you have erection or ejaculation problems, decreased libido, pain, discomfort, or swelling in the testicle area, a history of testicle, prostate or sexual problems, or previous surgeries in the groin, testicle, penis, or scrotum region or if your partner is over 35 years of age. At Fortis Escorts Hospital, Amritsar, the specialist will ask questions related to your health, perform a physical examination and ask you to perform a test called semen analysis. Your semen will then be checked in the laboratory to count the number of sperm and look for any abnormalities in the shape, movement, and any other abnormalities of the sperm. If your sperm analysis is normal, your doctor will recommend testing your female partner before conducting any more male infertility tests. If her tests are normal, your doctor will recommend additional tests for you. These tests will include scrotal ultrasound, transrectal ultrasound, hormone testing (level of testosterone and other hormones), post-ejaculation urinalysis, genetic tests, testicular biopsy, and specialized sperm function tests. After the test results, your doctor will recommend treatment or procedures to help you and your partner conceive. Even if an exact cause of infertility cannot be found, your doctor might be able to recommend treatments that will lead to conception. Your doctor might recommend surgery if the cause can be treated with a surgical procedure. Other treatment options include hormone treatments, antibiotics for infections and medications, and counseling for sexual intercourse abnormalities. Your doctor might also recommend assisted reproductive technology (ART) in which sperm is collected and inserted into the female genital tract or used to perform in vitro fertilization or intracytoplasmic sperm injection. • VENTRICULAR SEPTAL DEFECT (VSD) A ventricular septal defect (VSD) is when there is a hole in the heart and is present since birth. The hole lets the oxygen-rich blood get pumped back to the lungs instead of out of the heart to the rest of the body, causing the heart to work harder. A small ventricular septal defect (VSD) may cause no problems and close on its own but medium to large VSDs may need surgical repair in their first year to prevent complications. Some of the symptoms a baby may experience include poor eating, fast breathing or breathlessness, tiring easily, and failure to thrive. If your baby is experiencing any of these, you should contact the doctor at Fortis Escorts Hospital, Amritsar. Your doctor will examine your baby and listen for a heart murmur using a stethoscope that is often present in VSD. If the doctor can hear the murmur or find other signs or symptoms of the defect, he or she may order some tests. These tests include an echocardiogram, electrocardiogram (ECG), chest X-ray, cardiac catheterization, and pulse oximetry. The doctor will then set a date for the surgery, in which the defect is plugged or patched, and the abnormal opening is closed. The doctor might also prescribe some medications to decrease the amount of fluid in circulation and the lungs. After repair, the doctor will schedule regular follow-ups to make sure the ventricular septal defect remains closed.
