A leading centre in the region, providing comprehensive kidney disease management, the nephrology department is dedicated to the highest standards of patient care with the human touch.

Our team of dedicated, qualified and experienced nephrologists, provide, cutting edge care for all types of kidney disease –Acute Kidney Injury (Acute Renal Failure), chronic kidney disease (CKD) (Chronic Renal Failure), Renovascular or difficult to treat Hypertension, Nephritic Syndromes, Nephrotic Syndromes, Electrolyte disturbances and End Stage Kidney Disease.

Special focus is given to educating patients with CKD to delay progression, along with optimised diet and usingup-to-date, evidence-based medicines, to delay progression to End Stage Kidney Disease.

The scope of services the department provides:

  • Clinical Nephrology – Regular Out Patient and Inpatient Consultation
  • Critical Care Nephrology
  • Kidney Biopsy – Real-TimeUltrasound-guided
  • Temporary and tunnelled (Permcath) dialysis catheter placement
  • Haemodialysis
  • Emergency Dialysis 24 hrs
  • SLED
  • CRRT –for critical Patients
  • Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD, APD)
  • Plasmapheresis
  • Hemoperfusion techniques – for poisonings/ intoxications
  • Kidney Transplant Evaluation
  • Post Kidney Transplant Care

We offer cutting-edge care in all areas of nephrology with round-the-clock delivery of care for kidney patients.

Kidney Biopsy: Accurate treatment depends on accurate diagnosis. A kidney biopsy usually provides the most accurate diagnosis. Our team regularly performs real-time ultrasound-guided biopsies for both native kidneys and transplanted kidneys, with the aim of providing precise care.Already considered relatively safe, using automated needles with real-time guidance makes the procedures even safer. The sample obtained undergoes light microscopy (LM), immunofluorescence (IF) and electron microscopy (EM) studies as needed.

Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT): Highly sophisticated dialysis modalities for critically ill patients in ICU/ICCU with multi-organ failure, where routine haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis are not possible for various reasons.

Various procedures done with this technique are:

  • SCUF (Slow Continuous Ultrafiltration)
  • CVVH (Continuous Veno-Venous hemofiltration)
  • CVVHD (Continuous Veno-Venous haemodialysis)
  • CVVHDF (Continuous Veno-Venous hemodiafiltration)

We use state of the Art R.O.(Reverse Osmosis) water for the dialysis, which are monitored regularly with stringent tests as per international norms, to ensure patient safety. Facility for continuous monitoring of sick patient on dialysis through sophisticated monitors throughout the dialysis procedure is available.

Hemoperfusion: It is a modality for blood purification in which toxins removal is achieved by binding molecules to adsorbent material or resins.These are typically useful in poisoning and drug overdose, especially when done early can prevent or minimise complications, and can be lifesaving.

Supported by highly trained Medical, Technical and Nursing staff, our dialysis team provides the highest quality care.
