Renal Transplant And Urology
The Dept of Renal Transplant and Urology was established in June 2012. In a span of 6.5 years, it has developed into a state of the art urological centre offering renal transplant, laparoscopy and endourology services. With the joining of new faculty members, the department has been further strengthened and is now aiming to cater to the increased volume of patients. Providing the full spectrum of urological care with expertise using the latest cutting edge technology at an affordable cost and with short waiting times are the hallmarks of the department.
The department contains all the latest equipment viz ESWL machine, 100 watt holmium laser, Flex x 2 flexible Ureteroscope, Semirigid Ureteroscopes, Olympus bipolar generator and Urodynamic Laboratory.

This year saw the completion of 180 successful kidney transplants. The new developments in the department include starting of ABO incompatible kidney transplants. This is an important boon for the patients who do not have blood group compatible donors in their families. The success of transplants across the blood group barrier in a government set-up is a ray of hope for middle class Indian families, as this procedure is very expensive in private hospitals.
