We have following facilities under one roof.A leading centre for the management of all renal problems. State-of-the-art facilities for renal pathology, with complete biochemical, immunological, microbiological and histological (including immunoflorescence and Dimmuno-histo-chemistry) - back up available under one roof. Angiographic, genetic and HLA studies are available in-house for organ transplantation & diagnosis of other diseases. Latest generation, state of art fifteen bicarbonate haemodialysis machines with volumetric ultrafiltration and adjustable sodium facility, provide better patient safety profile. One of the few centres in India to provide highly sophisticated dialysis for critically ill patients in ICU/ICCU with multi-organ failure, where peritoneal or routine haemodialysis are not possible for various reasons Various procedures done with this technique are:- These facilities of Plasmapheresis & Therapeutic Plasma Exchange (TPE) are available for renal and non-renal patients such as LGB syndrome and myasthenia gravis. Chronic Peritoneal Dialysis/Automated One of the leading centres to provide continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) for patients of CRF, who are otherwise not suitable for kidney transplant or maintenance haemodialysis. CAPD is also suitable for patients who are living in far flung areas where facility of haemodialysis is not available.
Kidney failure describes a medical condition in which the kidneys fail to adequately filter toxins and waste products from the blood. The two forms are acute also called AKI (Acute Kidney Injury) and chronic referred to as CKD (Chronic kidney disease) a number of diseases or health problems may cause either form of renal failure to occur CKD patients are started on renal replacement therapy (RRT) once they reach a state of end stage renal disease (ESRD). Common disease leading to ESRD include diabetes mellitus, hypertension, chronic interstitial nephritis, polycystic kidney disease, and autoimmune conditions such as Lupus nephritis Diabetes is the most common cause of kidney transplantation accounting for approximately 25% of those in the developed and developing world.
Renal replacement therapy (RRT) can be divided into dialysis (Hemodialysis and Peritoneal dialysis) and renal transplant. ( The major developments over the past four decades in hemodialysis relate to improvements in membrane biocompatibility and dialyzer design, volumentric control, sophisticated monitoring systems that provide online clearance, isothermal dialysis, high flux membrances and convective modalities such as hemofiltration and hemodiafiltration). Although hemodialysis has improved the quality of life of ESRD patients it is not without its own problems. Kidney transplant is a much better option for patients. A successful kidney transplant frees patients from the need for dialysis and is a more effective treatment for kidney failure. Transplant patients have less restrictions and a better quality of life than do dialysis patients. It ha become the most successful and widespread organ transplantation performed today.
We at Primus Super Speciality Hospital are starting renal transplant program. Under the guidance of one of the senior most transplant surgeon and urologist of Delhi Dr. Kochar (MS, MCh) and Dr. S.K. Pal (MS. MCh) renal transplant has been planned. The team has been strengthened by addition of senior nephrologists Dr. Tanmay Pandya (MD. DM) The knowledge and experience of such eminent doctors would help in giving quality care in the pre and post transplant period.
The team comprise of senior Nephrologists Dr. Tanmay Pandya (Nephrology), Dr. G.S. Kochar (NCH), Dr. S.K. Pal (NCH).
The knowledge and experience such eminent Dr. would guarantee quality care for renal transplant patients.
24 hours casualty services are available. All patients are seen by a senior resident on duty and admitted if needed. A consultant supervises all these services round the clock.
Patients and doctors interactive programmes are held at regular intervals to educate about prevention and retardation of progression of renal failure in patients of pre dialysis and rehabilitation and counseling for patients on renal replacement therapy.
