Dr. Singal, Best Pediatric Urologist in Mumbai, India also takes a great interest in Antenatally Diagnosed Kidney abnormalities and does counselling for the prospective parents.

This has important repercussions for the developing baby as well as the parents. Parents need to be properly counseled about the outcome and things needed after birth and most of these problems are easily treatable after birth.

Dr Singal feels that the children with any kidney problems needs early diagnosis and treatment as kidneys are vital for the growth and development. In most cases where we see renal failure in young adults, it’s probably due to Pediatric Nephro-Urological conditions that are not recognised and well managed in the pediatric age group.
