Having seen so much suffering in India, Dhivya Sundaramurthy, MBBS, MD developed an interest in the medical field early on in her life that culminated in a medical school admission. From the beginning of medical college, renal autoregulation & counter current mechanisms in physiology, acid base disturbances in biochemistry and pathology of Glomerulonephritis have always captivated Dr. Sundaramurthy and attracted her towards the kidneys. Renal medicine is a field that continues to embrace internal medicine at its core and helps Dr. Sundaramurthy deliver care to a diverse patient population like taking care of dialysis or CKD patients, managing transplant patients, treating complex glomerulonephritis related to lupus or vasculitis with immunosuppression, challenging Cardio-renal & Hepato-renal patients to name a few.
