Treatment & Services - Kidney
KidneyCentre for nephrology is dedicated to the understanding of kidney diseases, their development, progression, treatment and prevention. The faculty is at the forefront of research and patient care in the field of kidney diseases. Pursuit of excellence in patient care through the improvement of the understanding of disease processes and development of new strategies in the treatment of individuals with kidney disease is our primary goal. We offer both inpatient and OPD care to all nephrology patients round the clock. This includes counselling, management of all kidney disorders, procedures and the support of systems affected by kidney diseases. Services for kidney biopsies, dialysis and kidney transplantation are also available under one roof. It is a close knit unit which includes highly specialised nephrologists, urologists and transplant surgeons.Kidney transplant operation involves taking out one kidney from the body of a person and transplanting it surgically in the body of another patient whose both kidneys have failed. The transplanted kidney functions as the patient’s own kidney. Patient with end stage kidney failure has two choices, either lifelong dialysis or kidney transplantation. Transplantation offers better quality of life, better long term rehabilitation and is more cost effective than life long dialysis.
Critical Care NephrologyThe centre for nephrology is a major participant in intensive care by providing care to ICU patients with acute renal failure, volume disturbances or electrolyte ad acid base disorder. We have several techniques for treatment of acute renal failure such as alow continuous venovenous hemofiltration, hemaabsorption, plasmatherisis etc. depending on patient’s requirement and underlying disease. Much of the work with ICU patients is related to the remarkably active procedures (IV CONTRAST FOR Angioplasty/ Post CABG) and acute renal failures following polytrauma, multiorgan failure of any origin etc. Department is equipped for all kind of extracorporeal therapies inculding MARS etc.
