FACILITIES IN THE DEPARTMENT

  • Dialysis Unit

    Acute renal failure can be a potentially reversible condition if appropriate treatment is given at the right time. Dialysis support can be lifesaving in some patients suffering from acute renal failure. The worldwide incidences of this complication each year is about 140 per million population and this occurrence is documented to be much higher in India.

    Considering the increase in the incidence of Acute Renal Failure (ARF), we offer dialysis support for all ARF patients as well as for those needing Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT). With a view to fulfill our mission of providing quality healthcare at affordable prices, we offer dialysis therapy to patients with chronic renal failure. The department runs a state-of-the-art dialysis unit with modern equipment and treatment facilities, which helps in the treatment of patients suffering from acute and chronic renal failure.

  • Kidney Transplant

    Depending on the age and stage of the kidney disease, a nephrologist will be able to decide a suitable course of treatment. A successful kidney transplant provides a better quality of life, longevity of life and productivity, as it prevents long-term issues related to dialysis. A relatively new procedure called laparoscopic donor nephrectomy (which is minimally invasive) is performed in donor surgeries for transplantation. In this procedure, the donor’s kidney is surgically removed through a keyhole incision. This technique of removal is a boon to the donor since the recovery process is quick.

  • Interventional Nephrology

    With significant advances in various fields of imaging techniques and minimally invasive catheter-based procedures, nephrologists at SSNMC can provide a larger number of services to their patients. Interventional nephrology provides minimally invasive techniques to obtain and maintain vascular access for dialysis by placing and replacing these catheters. Interventional nephrologists at SSNMC offer the following procedures:

    • Insertion and removal of haemodialysis catheters, including tunneled catheters
    • Insertion, removal, and manipulation of peritoneal dialysis catheters
    • Renal biopsies (ultrasound guided fine-needle sampling - both native and graft)
