Renal Replacement therapy

This encompasses all life saving treatment options for advanced renal failure which are hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, hemofiltration, hemodiafiltration and renal transplantation.

Once it is determined that renal replacement therapy will be required, the patient (along with his physician) should consider the advantages and disadvantages of three types of therapy.

  • » Hemodialysis (in the hospital or at Home)
  • » Peritoneal dialysis at home. (CAPD) and
  • » Renal Transplantation (living donor or deceased organ donor, also called cadaveric donor)

Renal replacement therapies are treatments for severe kidney failure (also called stage V chronic kidney disease or end stage renal disease). When the kidneys are no longer working effectively, waste products and fluid build up in the blood. Dialysis takes over the function of the failing kidneys to remove the fluid and waste products.

It is typically needed when about 90% or more of kidney function is lost.

We have a robust Renal Transplant Program where Nephrologists, Urologists and Transplant Surgeons work as a complete team. Our success rate is comparable to the best in the world. In the last two years, we have performed the highest number of Cadaver Renal Transplants in North India. We perform Laparoscopic Donor Nephrectomy to ensure that the donor suffers minimal pain and benefits from early recovery.

Before transplant, complete evaluation of the patient is done as a rule which may include investigations like Renal Biopsy, Renal Functioning Test and assessment of reversible causes as and when needed.

After the patient is stabilized, they are counselled on various aspects of transplant, including evaluation of potential donors, preparation of recipient and cross matching of tissue typing to ensure successful Renal Transplant.

The Transplant ICU is manned by highly efficient nurses and doctors. The ICU has lamellar airflow so that post-operation infections are minimized as much as possible.

We also offer Preemptive Kidney Transplant, Highly Antigenic Kidney Transplant, Re-Transplant and Transplantation in HIV Positive patients. ABO incompatible Kidney Transplant are also done at the Centre.
