Primus Kidney Transplant & Dialysis Center
The department of Nephrology at Primus provides comprehensive and high quality services. It has state of art Advanced Kidney Dialysis (AKD) unit. The department focuses to provide highest 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.
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.
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
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 those undergoing dialysis. It has 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. The knowledge and experience of such eminent doctors has helped in giving quality care in the pre and post transplant period.
