Various conditions treated under the sub-speciality of Department of Renal Sciences at Vimhans Nayati include:

  • Infertility – Male infertility is defined as the inability to impregnate your female partner even after multiple attempts. Though the problem is very less talked about, it is to be noted that male infertility accounts for almost 40 percent of the cases of infertility in India, a problem that affects 14 percent of the population. Male infertility can be a result of the following problems
  1. Alleviated sperm count
  2. Low sperm motility
  3. Decreased sperm function
  4. An obstruction that prevents the sperm from traveling to the penis
  5. Congenital defects and deformities like undescended testicles
  6. Hormonal imbalance leading to low testosterone levels
  7. Severe injury or trauma to the genitals
  8. Chronic infection
  9. Underlying medical condition or treatment, taken for the same
  10. Problems with ejaculation, such as retrograde ejaculation
  11. A side effect of certain medication like certain steroids and antifungal medication
  12. Exposure to harmful toxins, chemicals, and radiations
  13. Overheating of the testicles, which can damage the sperm
  14. Use of recreational drugs, smoking and drinking
  • Erectile dysfunction – ED, is a condition marked by the inability of a male to attain or maintain an erection while having sex. Also referred to as impotence, the condition is often used interchangeably with infertility. Experiencing the problem once in a while is quite common but if it persists, it can be an indication of a serious health issue that needs proper medical attention. ED may be triggered by any of the following:
  1. Persisting cardiovascular ailment
  2. Chronic condition like diabetes and hypertension
  3. Being overweight or obese
  4. Hormonal imbalance
  5. Renal ailments
  6. Psychological problems like stress, anxiety, and depression
  7. Elevated cholesterol levels
  8. Excessive drug abuse
  9. Underlying diseases or conditions like Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and Peyronie’s disease
  • Male hormone deficiency – Just like females, males too can suffer from hormonal imbalance marked by the alleviated levels of male hormones testosterone and androgen. These are usually a result of unhealthy lifestyle practices or an underlying condition that requires immediate medical supervision.
  • Prostate disease – This includes the entire gamut of ailments and malignancies affecting the prostate gland, which is a small walnut-sized gland present in the pelvic area of the males. The gland is responsible for secreting semen and plays a vital role in male fertility. The prostate gland is likely to be affected by any of the two problems:
  1. Prostate cancer
  2. Benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH
