Nephrology & Renal Transplant.

Nephrology Treatments in Kochi

The Department of Nephrology & Renal Transplant is one of the premier renal centers in the country in terms of skill and experience. The department runs one of the most successful Renal Transplantation Programmes in the country, attracting patients from the entire state of Kerala, neighboring states as well as from abroad. Of the nearly 150-200 transplants performed at the center every year many have complex issues (Sensitized, Elderly and Paediatric Transplants).

The center has a large number of patients with Chronic Disease (CKD) on follow up and the comprehensive management strategies to reduce the progression of CKD is another highlight of the center. A large maintenance Haemodialysis program, CAPD program, 5 dedicated machines for performing CVVH, CVVHD and CVVHDF for the critically ill patients are the other notable features. There is also an Anapheresis Machine based on the COBE Spectra system which plays an important role in desensitization therapy and management of humoral rejection. Renal biopsy service with immunofluorescence (in house neuropathologist) and electron microscopy is also available here.
