The Centres of Excellence for Nephrology and Urology, excel in several areas of Nephrology including renal biopsies, critical care nephrology, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. With more than 6000 Nephrology admissions and over 5000 Urological surgeries each year, the centre has over 75,000 patients undergoing dialysis and have the distinction of having performed over 10,000 kidney transplants. The centres provide complete care in Urology for diseases including congenital disorders, stone disease, urological cancers, incontinence, infertility, erectile dysfunction etc. Lithotripsy, Endo-urology, TURP and Laparoscopic urological surgeries are other surgeries that are routinely performed.
Nephrology is a medical specialty that covers diagnosis, treatment and management of disorders of the kidney. Kidney stones and kidney failure are some of the common illnesses treated. Kidney diseases associated with other illnesses and conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes are also managed.
We run a well known and complete renal transplant program, and perform both autologous and cadaveric transplants. We also have one of the earliest and largest organ transplant registries in India. Minimally Invasive surgery is used for kidney donors thus minimising post-operative recovery and hospital stay.
Procedures related to kidney transplantation include:
- Cadaveric renal transplantation
- Cadaver-donor kidney transplantation
- Living donor kidney transplants (from both related and unrelated donors)
- Laparoscopic donor Nephrectomy
The process of removing wastes and impurities from the blood in the event of a malfunctioning kidney, is called dialysis. The kidneys may not function effectively in conditions such as kidney failure, severe diabetes, congenital kidney disease, hypertension etc
