The Department of Nephrology was established as early as 2005 with a single dialysis machine. Over the years it has grown into a full-fledged department providing comprehensive nephrological care to the patients. We deliver quality nephrological care to patients from rural areas of Puducherry and Cuddalore district of Tamilnadu.

The Department is managed by highly proficient qualified team of nephrologists, with skilled nursing and paramedical staffs. The services we provide include:

  • Clinical Nephrology
  • Hemodialysis(Both Acute and Maintenance Hemodialysis)
  • Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD)
  • Renal Biopsy
  • Critical care nephrology

Clinical Nephrology:

The Department provides state-of-the-art clinical care for wide range of Kidney diseases. The faculty has expertise in every area of nephrology including Acute and Chronic Kidney Diseases, Glomerulonephritis, Cystic Kidney Disease and Metabolic disorders.

Hemodialysis Unit:

We have well-equipped Hemodialysis unit with state-of-the-art dialysis machines, which is managed by well-trained dialysis technicians and staffs. As of now, we have seven dialysis stations providing round the clock dialysis services to the needy patients. Eligible patients are given maintenance dialysis at free of cost under Tamilnadu Government’s Medicare programme. Patients live normal lives except for the time needed for dialysis. We perform approximately 4000 hemodialysis per year.

Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD):

We encourage CAPD, which is the home based dialysis therapy for patients with end stage Kidney disease. CAPD is preferred for patients with vascular access problems and cardiac disease. CAPD catheters are inserted at bedside through percutaneous technique by trained nephrologists. Patients are taught to perform exchange procedure and to cope with problems during dialysis by experienced PD nurse. Patients are well explained about exit site care of abdominal catheter to avoid any source of infection.  People on CAPD visit Dialysis unit once a month.

Renal Biopsy:

Kidney biopsies for various indications including nephrotic syndrome, rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, and acute glomerulonephritis are done. Kidney biopsy samples are prepared with modern technique and examined by dedicated nephro-pathologist.

Critical care nephrology:

We provide nephrology care and extracorporeal therapies like SLED and plasmapheresis to the critically ill patients.
