Meet The Expert - Dr Francisco Salcido-Ochoa

Meet Dr Francisco, an experienced nephrologist and transplant immunologist. He specialises in the treatment of any kidney related problems and how our immune system contributes to diseases. He was trained in the largest hospital in Singapore and has more than 10 years of experience in this field. 

He knew that he wanted to go into nephrology when he was still a medical student because he met a very enthuasistic teacher. This teacher inspired and encouraged him to go pursue this specialisation.

To him, nephrology focuses on a very unique part of the body. He likens it to an army that protects our bodies against infection and cancers. Many diseases don't just affect the kidneys, but the whole immune system of the body.
