- Primary defects in the kidney tissues such as parenchymal disease
- Obstruction of urinary tract
- Cystic disease
It is a problem in which the flow of urine is hindered. The flow from kidneys to the urinary bladder through the ureter is blocked and the urine gets backed up in the kidneys. Prolonged retention of urine in the kidney leads to its swelling and thereby damaging either one or both the kidneys. If the block gets opened quickly, then recovery is not a problem. But if it doesn t happen then it leads to severe damage of kidneys. Some of the common causes of obstructive nephropathy include bladder stone, kidney stone, bladder or urethral cancer, enlargement of prostrate and other spreading cancer. These are small, hard stones that are formed from mineral deposits. The minerals that cannot be passed on through urine gets deposited in the kidney and becomes hard as time progresses. The stone may be anywhere in the urinal track but will originate only in the kidney. Kidney stones can be passed out usually by drinking a lot of water to pass it through urine. It is a painful process to get the stone out through urine. In few cases the size of the stone is quite big which cannot pass the urine track. In such cases we provide the necessary treatment and care according to the requirement. Invasive methods are also adopted. It is a major cause for kidney failure. In this case either dialysis or kidney transplantation is necessary. Treatment can be done to delay the progression of the disease. With diabetes the glucose and sugar level increase in the body which damages the kidney. As a result, the waste toxic and fluids remains in the blood without getting filtered. Hence if blood glucose level is under control then diseases of this type can be controlled. It is a syndrome which is caused by kidney failure. It leads to flow of protein albumin along with urine. It becomes acute when untreated. The fluids in the blood gets stagnated and results in swelling of the face, anklets, hands and feet. Other symptoms include foamy appearance of urine, abnormal weight gain due to fluid retention outside the circulation track, poor appetite. These diseases are also a severe problem as far as children are concerned. Children and young adolescents are prone to kidney disease nowadays. It may be a congenital disorder, or may be due to hereditary diabetics. We give a complete care for pediatric kidney diseases and all the treatment protocols are under one roof. Dialysis is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function (renal replacement therapy) due to renal failure. Dialysis may be used for very sick patients who have suddenly but temporarily, lost their kidney function (acute renal failure) or for quite stable patients who have permanently lost their kidney function (stage 5 chronic kidney disease). When healthy, the kidneys maintain the body's internal equilibrium of water and minerals (sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and sulfate) and the kidneys remove from the blood the daily metabolic load of fixed hydrogen ions. The kidneys also function as a part of the endocrine system producing erythropoietin and 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol (calcitriol).
- Our successful team has experts who can perform the following.
Hemodialysis is a process of removing the waste products from the blood when the kidneys are not function. There are few types in hemodialysis
Day time & nocturnal Hemodialysis
ICU Dialysis. SLED & CRRT.
Peritoneal Dialysis continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis
Automated peritoneal dialysis
Dedicated Hemodialysis machines for Hepatitis B & C patients Kidney or renal transplantation is an end stage procedure for the lost kidney function. When both kidneys are damaged with disease kidney transplantation is the suggested protocol as dialysis cannot be a lifelong procedure. Highlights of kidney transplantation team include.
Well experienced Nephrologists
Counseling & coordination team
24x7 Cadaver organ retrieval team
Live donor & cadaver transplantations
Multi-disciplinary kidney transplantation unit
ABO incompatible Transplant.
Urology is a branch of science that deals with diagnosis and treatment of diseases in urinary tract system and male reproductive system. It includes kidneys, adrenal glands, urinary bladder, urethra, ureters and male reproductive organs
Our highly qualified urologist team are experienced in following
Endourology is a minimum invasive procedure to remove or fragment kidney stone with the help of tiny endoscopic instruments. the process is carried out through urethra, urinary bladder and ureter. Endourological procedures include urethroscopy, cystoscopy, ureteroscopy, and nephroscopy.
Laparoscopic Urology or a key hole surgery in which two to three incisions are made instead of a large cut. Although it is only a key hole, the view obtained is bright and wide, more convenient for the physician to operate. Quick healing method adopted for renal operations.
Paediatric Urology provides comprehensive and intensive care for children affected with renal diseases. All urological disorders and problems of children are diagnosed by a special team of pediatric urologists.
Andrology is the one which is exclusively for men like gynecology for women. Andrology deals with men reproductive system and disorders such as infertility and sexual dysfunctions associated with it.
