Primus Kidney Transplant & Dialysis Center
The department of Nephrology has state of art Advanced Kidney Dialysis (AKD) unit which has been established at Primus Super Speciality Hospital. One of the worlds famous Nephrologist has taken the challenge of providing Nephrologcal Services. He has been appointed as Director Nephrology & Kidney Transplant. The department is always focused to provide high quality medical care with a human touch. The department is one of the first few centers in India to provide state of Art Renal Replacement Therapy. Under the guidance of Dr. Tanmay Pandya, we are running the program. Dr. Pandya is an alumnus of the prestigious institute of Kidney Disease and Research Center, Ahmadabad. Always a top performer, Dr.Pandya was awarded 5 Gold Medals on completion of MBBS from the M.S. University of Baroda, and Gold Medal in Nephrology from Gujarat University, Ahmadabad.
His Keen interest and work in the field of Kidney Transplantation won him the recognition of Distinguished.
Research Fellow by the American Society of Transplantation in 2009.From his previous assignment as the Head of Department of Nephrology at a top corporate hospital in Gujarat, Dr.Pandya brings with him invaluable clinical skills to DaVita Nephrolife.
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.
We provide state of Art R.O.(Reverse Osmosis) water for the dialysis, to ensure patient safety and prevent long term complications on haemodialysis. Facility for continuous monitoring of sick patient on dialysis through highly sophisticated monitors throughout the dialysis procedure is available. Each haemodialysis session is for four hours duration. We make sure that adequate dialysis is given to the patients without compromising on duration of dialysis sessions. As, some of the hospitals are giving, only three hours of dialysis in each sessions, in which patients have to take more than twice or thrice weekly dialysis in order to get adequate dialysis.
We have separate units for Hepatitis B & C positive patients.
Heat-clean disinfection of haemodialysis machines after every shift is practiced for patient safety.
Regular dialysis facilities are available in the centre from 7.00 AM to 12 midnight, besides emergency dialysis round the clock. Supported by highly trained Medical, Technical and Nursing staff, our dialysis unit provides the best quality care to all patients.
Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy:
One of the few centers 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:-
• SCUF (Slow Continuous Ultra filtration)
• CVVH (Continuous Veno-Venous hemofiltration)
• CVVHD (Continuous Veno-Venous haemodialysis)
• CVVHDF (Continuous Veno-Venous hemodiafiltration)
Plasmapheresis & Plasma Exchange:
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 has been successfully performing renal transplants Under the guidance of one of the most skilled transplant surgeon and urologist Dr. M S Jha. The team has been strengthened by addition of senior nephrologists Dr. Tanmay Pandya (MD. DM) The knowledge and experience of such eminent doctors has helped in giving quality care in the pre and post transplant period.
Patient care Academic Programme:
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.
