MedPark Hospital welcomes 100s of nephrologists globally

To “The World Congress of Nephrology 2023”

Some 240 nephrologists and experts have gathered for pre-congress courses at MedPark Hospital as part of the annual “The World Congress of Nephrology 2023” seminar.

The pre-congress courses provide an opportunity for nephrologists, researchers and industry experts to come together and discuss the latest science, new intervention techniques, and state-of-the-art technologies in nephrology, as well as panel discussions and networking opportunities.

The pre-congress courses consist of a discussion session where key decision-makers and stakeholders present problems and burdens of kidney care and disease in different regions, as well as in-depth three interventional courses with live demonstrations. The topics covered include: Catheters and Kidney Intervention by Assist. Prof. Dr Sukit Raksasuk, an expert nephrologist and a professor at Mahidol University; Endovascular Intervention for AV Access by Prof. Dr Tushar Vachharajani from Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine and Dr Chieh Suai Tan from Singapore General Hospital, and; Point of Case Ultrasound (POCUS) by Prof. Jadranka Buturovic Ponikvar of University Medical Centre Ljubljana and Prof. Dr Vandana Dua Niyyar from Emory University, USA.

On this occasion, MedPark’s management team, led by Dr Pongpat Patanavanich, Managing Director, met with Professor Dr Anil Agarwal, Past President of the American Society of Diagnostic and Intervention Nephrology, and also served as an ambassador for the International Society of Nephrology who is a keynote speaker on the course to share MedPark’s concept and strategy of becoming a tertiary hospital with a specialty in high acuity and complex diseases.

“We are honoured to be part of this seminar and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and information among nephrologists,” said Dr Pongpat. “I believe that by bringing together experts in the field, we can accelerate progress in kidney health treatment.”

This aligns with MedPark’s mission as the hospital aims to go beyond a stereotypical hospital and become a private-sector academic medical institution with the focus on three pillars, namely, research, education, and medical services. The goal is to continuously improve knowledge of medical staff, leading to better quality of care for their patients.
