Kidney health is crucial for the overall health of our body. We at Preethi Institute of medical science know about it better. We have a state-of-the-art department with a specialized team of doctors who can take care of you or your kindred in times of need. The Department of Nephrology runs 24*7 on all days and has a dedicated dialysis unit as well as a transplantation team. We also specialize in critical care nephrology wherein patients may need intensive care and emergency haemodialysis.
Our dialysis unit uses a new dialyzer for each therapy for better clinical outcomes and reduces the chances of infection and cross-contamination. The dialysis sessions will be customized for each patient and sessions will be tailor-made to them accordingly. We have a world-class, qualified team headed by a Nephrologist involving trained dialysis technicians and nutritionists. We regularly monitor water quality and follow top-notch infection control protocols. We aim to make every dialysis session a comfortable and pleasant experience.
Our kidney transplantation program is run by a team involving a Nephrologist, Surgeons, Intensives, Anaesthetist, and Interventionist as well as dedicated supporting nurses and staff. We also specialize in difficult transplants like second-time transplants, blood group incompatible transplantation, or other high-risk patients. There is a government-approved cadaveric program running and registration is being done.
It is estimated that 20 to 30% of ICU-admitted patients have kidney problems, either before or during the hospital admission period. We, at Preethi Hospitals, have the best team of doctors who can assess, monitor, and manage the disease at an early stage. We also have dedicated haemodialysis machines and staff for ICU dialysis according to patient needs. We believe an early treatment with a multimodality approach can go a long way in the treatment of critical care patients.
India is the capital of diabetes and one of the most common organs affected by diabetes is our kidneys. Initial symptoms include polyuria (excessive and frequent urination) and frothy urination. Early deduction and appropriate management are essential to prevent the progression of the disease. We can monitor the disease’s presence or progression by a simple blood and urine test to make sure our kidney always stays healthy!
Acute kidney injury is a term used to describe any kidney problem that has happened as early as 3 months and is usually reversible. Appropriate treatment of the disease can prevent patients from long-lasting kidney problems or at times can prevent the stage of haemodialysis. We know a stitch in time saves nine; treatment at the right time can save a patient from lifelong haemodialysis.
Kidney infection, otherwise called pyelonephritis, is a notorious problem, especially in the female population. Not only the treatment of the disease with antibiotics are important but finding the cause of which and treating the causative factor is necessary.
Some kidney diseases reduce the kidney’s ability to filter toxins and alter water filtration. The diagnosis of which is usually obtained by kidney biopsy. It is a relatively simple procedure, where a small sample of kidney tissue is taken from you after a local biopsy. In Preethi Hospitals, we do the biopsy on ultrasound guidance (We see the kidney in real-time with an ultrasound and then take a sample), for better patient compliance and to make sure adequate sampling is being done.
