At Symbiosis University Hospital, we have a world-class Nephrology Department with advanced facilities and an experienced team of doctors, nurses and technicians that are available 24x7 for any nephrology emergency. We have eight haemodialysis machines, including an isolation room for infected and Hepatitis-B positive patients, and one dedicated machine for ICU patients. Each hemodialysis bed is equipped with a non-invasive blood pressure monitor.
We have an automated dialyzer-reprocessing machine for better cleaning and life of the dialyzer. Considering the need for strict aseptic precautions, there is a separate room for peritoneal dialysis patients. At SUHRC, we are committed to providing the finest evidence-based management to all our nephrology patients.
Our patient guide will help you better understand the nature of kidney functioning, common kidney diseases and diagnosis as well as treatments available here:
At SUHRC we diagnose and treat kidney diseases. Many kidney diseases often show no symptoms. Tests mentioned below can help detect kidney diseases:
Kidney diseases can sometimes lead to kidney failure (also called End-Stage Renal Disease). There is no cure for kidney failure. A person with kidney failure needs to have one of these treatments to live:
A way of cleaning wastes and extra fluid from the blood artificially. The person's blood is pumped out of the body through an artificial kidney machine for cleansing and then reintroduced into the body. Usually, hemodialysis treatments are needed two or three times a week, and each treatment lasts around four hours. Hemodialysis patients must follow a restricted diet and must take a variety of medicines and vitamin supplements. Our machines are from Nikkiso, Japan - compact dialysis machines that offer comfort to patients during treatment and ensure completely safe dialysis with their detectors which enable continuous monitoring of various parameters.
This is another way of cleaning wastes and extra fluid from the blood artificially. A permanent, soft tube called a catheter is used to fill the abdomen with a cleansing liquid called dialysis solution. The walls of the abdominal cavity are lined with a membrane called the peritoneum. The peritoneum lets waste and extra fluid pass from the blood into the dialysis solution. Wastes and fluids then leave the body when the dialysis solution is drained. This is called an "exchange”. These "exchanges” happen several times a day. PD patients also have diet restrictions. Our nephrology team, which includes experienced doctors, nurses and technicians, are available 24x7 for any nephrology emergency.
A procedure that transplants a healthy kidney from a donor. The new kidney takes over the work of the two failed kidneys. The donated kidney may come from a living donor, or from someone who has just died. Kidney transplant facilities will be available at SUHRC in the near future.
