Nephrology

The department of nephrology provides medical care to the patients who suffer from the disorders of kidney. It includes patient on chronic dialysis therapy or those who suffer from acute kidney failure. In addition, we provide renal replacement to the critically sick patients in the medical and surgical ICU’s. We have an 20-bedded inpatient nephrology ward with dedicated nephrology nurses. Our outpatient dialysis unit is well equipped with state of the art dialysis machines and reverses osmosis water purification system. The faculty is capable of performing all nephrology procedures including native and transplant kidney biopsies, temporary and permanent dialysis catheter and peritoneal dialysis catheters. The department runs a busy nephrology and transplant clinic for nephrology care. In addition, we have a dedicated Liver-Kidney clinic, perhaps the only one of its kind in the country for patients with combined liver and kidney diseases.

We have a rapidly growing kidney transplant program and have performed 158 kidney transplants including living donor, cadaveric and renal transplant in HIV positive patients. We recently started performing the kidney swap for blood group incompatible patients. We have regularly presented papers,abstracts and posters in major international and national nephrology conferences.The department of Nephrology regularly organizes free kidney camp every year in the month of March to celebrate world kidney day.
