NEPHROLOGY & DIALYSIS

Nephrology is a speciality of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the kidneys: the study of normal kidney function and kidney problems, preservation of kidney health, and the treatment of kidney problems, from diet and medication to renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation)

Our kidneys are one of the most important organs that filter and manage the waste in our body. Even a slight discomfort in the kidneys can result in a lot of unrest in the body. Over 30% of critically-ill patients develop renal failure of various severities. Therefore, referring it to an experienced nephrologist becomes essential, so as to correctly diagnose and treat the disorder.

Our Department of Nephrology (Department of Kidney / Renal disease management) provides a complete range of consultative, diagnostic and treatment services for patients with kidney diseases. The scope of care encompasses various stages of kidney diseases right from earliest detectable changes in kidney function through end-stage kidney disease, as well as people with high blood pressure, kidney stones, and other kidney-related disorders like Acute Renal Failure, Chronic Kidney Disease.

DIALYSIS

When kidney function drops below minimum requirement to sustain body and maintain normal parameters, the solution is to replace the kidney function with either another artificial technology or transplant of healthy kidney. Purification of blood via artificial means is called “Dialysis”.

Type of Dialysis
Haemodialysis:
  1. Haemodialysis is a method, wherein blood is purified through a machine known as “hemodialysis”. Blood flows through a dialyser and is returned to the body after purification.
  2. Haemodialysis requires AV-Fistula or dialysis catheter. Dialysis catheter could be of short term or long term duration.
  3. Haemodialysis should be performed twice or thrice a week as per advice by nephrologist for patients whose kidneys are permanently impaired.
  4. Haemodialysis is also required and performed in patients having severe, but temporary reduction in kidney function.
  5. It can be performed at hospital only under observation of skilled nephrologists and technical staff.

Areas of Excellence

  1. Daily OPD for outdoor patients and day–care facilities
  2. Well-equipped hemodialysis unit managed by skilled, experienced and senior technicians and nursing staff
  3. A highly qualified team of nephrologists, fully computerized Fresenius machines.
  4. Highly specialized and dedicated water treatment plant that gives best quality water for effective dialysis
  5. Convenient and quick facility for bed side dialysis
