About Our Nephrology Department

The Nephrology department of Our Hospital is one of the oldest and the best Nephrology units in the country. It gives comprehensive Nephrology care which includes general nephrology, intensive care nephrology, hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and kidney transplantation.

The hemodialysis unit is equipped with 15 ultramodern dialysis machines and RO plant. The work load is huge and increasing requiring round the clock service even for out-patients. It supports the 100-bedded critical care department with CRRT and SLED which are dialysis for patients who are seriously ill and dependant on high doses of medicines to maintain blood pressure. Hepatitis B and C patients have dedicated machines and staff thereby ensuring prevention of cross infection. All universal precautions are taken to prevent all forms of infection. The dialysis technicians are all well trained and experienced. Nearly 50 to 55 hemodialysis are done daily.

Kidney transplantation is being conducted at our hospital for more than 25 years. Our department is one of the first units to start kidney transplants in the country. Patients from all over the country and abroad come here for kidney transplants. We perform live donor transplants as well as deceased donor transplants. This is to ensure highest ethical standards given the prevailing condition in the developing nations.

Frequently Asked Questions

You will speak with an anesthesiologist the morning of your surgery. If your doctor requests an anesthesia consultation at the time of pre-admission testing, we will make special arrangements for that. If you want to speak with an anesthesiologist before the day of your surgery, arrangements can be made to speak with him/her by phone.

The choice of anesthesia is usually a joint decision, made primarily by the anesthesiologist but influenced by the surgeon’s needs and the patient’s preference. Other factors that influence choice include the type and location of the procedure, the projected length of your surgery, and your physical condition.

A CRNA (certified registered nurse anesthetist) is a registered nurse who has completed a Master’s Degree program in nursing and is trained to give anesthesia under the supervision of a physician.

An anesthesiologist assistant is an allied health professional who has completed a two-year Master’s Degree of extensive training in the delivery of anesthesia under the supervision of an anesthesiologist.

Medications can be given before, during, and after to help prevent nausea. These medications make it much more unlikely that you will feel nauseated after anesthesia. Make sure you inform your anesthesiologist if you have had nausea and vomiting with past surgeries.
