Services » Nephrology
The Department of Nephrology provides comprehensive health care for patients with different types of renal (kidney) diseases. Acute and chronic renal diseases caused by diabetes mellitus, hypertension, stone disease, infections, hereditary illness and poisons are diagnosed and managed.

Services offered:

Outpatient and Inpatient Services

Highly qualified and experienced physicians look after patients with various types of kidney diseases. The physicians are ably supported by a committed team of nurses, physician assistants, medical social workers and a renal nutritionist.

Treatment for Kidney Failure

Patients with a severe degree of kidney failure cannot lead a comfortable life with medications and dietary restrictions alone. They need a treatment modality known as dialysis, a procedure to purify the blood by removing toxic substances.

The term chronic renal failure denotes a permanent loss of kidney function. When a person has suffered an irreversible loss of more than 90% of kidney function, the patient is diagnosed as having end-stage renal disease. Patients with end-stage renal disease undergo lifelong maintenance dialysis or a kidney transplant.

The department offers two types of dialysis; hemodialysis, in which the patient's blood is filtered by an artificial kidney and peritoneal dialysis, wherein a soft tube called a catheter is used to fill the abdomen with a cleansing liquid called dialysis solution. Those with end- stage renal disease are given the option of either hemodialysis or Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD).

Kidney Transplantation Services

Kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice for patients who have end-stage renal disease, wherein they have permanently lost over 90% of their kidney function. The only two options available to such patients are kidney transplantation or life-long dialysis.

The Department of Nephrology coordinates the comprehensive kidney transplantation program. All essential departments and laboratory support are provided under one roof. A state-of-the-art hemodialysis unit prepares patients for the transplant surgery. The unit has the latest computerized dialysis machines and monitors to ensure patient safety. The most well-equipped and modern operation theatres provide a safe surgical procedure for patients where experienced and qualified anaesthesiology, urology and vascular surgery teams work together.

Well-planned protocol-based postoperative care helps in prompt recovery after surgery. Transplant recipients are followed up on a regular basis by the transplant team.
