Apollo Nephrology Unit
Nephrology is a medical discipline that covers the diagnosis, treatment, and management of kidney diseases. Commonly treated disorders include kidney stones and kidney failure. Nephrology also involves comprehensive care for kidney diseases associated with other illnesses and conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes.
We run a well-known and complete renal transplant program, and perform both autologous and cadaveric kidney transplants.
Procedures related to kidney transplantation include:
- Cadaveric renal transplantation
- Cadaver-donor kidney transplantation
- Living donor kidney transplants (from both related and unrelated donors)
- Laparoscopic donor Nephrectomy
- ABO Incompatible Kidney Transplants
- Pediatric Kidney transplants
Dialysis is a procedure to remove wastes and impurities from the blood in the event of a malfunctioning kidney. The kidneys may not function properly in conditions like kidney failure, severe diabetes, congenital kidney disease, hypertension etc. Patients who undergoes dialysis can lead a normal life and even travel, as long as dialysis is possible at the place they are visiting.

1. Kidney Biopsy – A kidney biopsy is the removal of a small piece of kidney tissue for examination to diagnose the condition of kidney disease. Percutaneous Biopsy – This is performed by Nephrologist. The doctor inserts a biopsy needle through the skin to the surface of the kidney. Ultrasound images are used to find the proper location..
2. Temporary HD catheter Insertion – This is used to start acute or chronic hemodialysis in a new patient. It is inserted in the neck or groin. It is being done here in both children & Adults
3. Permcatheter insertion – A permanent catheter is inserted under local anesthesia for patients requiring maintenance hemodialysis .This is used if a permanent vascular access is not possible or fails in dialysis patients.
4. Plasma Exchange for Neurological , Atypical Hemolytic Ureamic Syndrome ,Poisoning. Here dialysis catheter is placed and plasma exchange is done by plasma or albumin
5. Intravenous Pyelogram – An intravenous pyelogram (IVP) is a special x-ray exam of the kidneys, bladder, and ureters (the tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder). An injection of X-ray contrast medium is given to a patient via a needle or cannula into the vein, typically in the antecubital fossa of arm. The contrast is excreted or removed from the bloodstream via the kidneys, and the contrast media becomes visible on X-rays almost immediately after injection. X-rays are taken at specific time intervals to capture the contrast as it travels through the different parts of the urinary system. This gives a comprehensive view of the patient’s anatomy and some information on the functioning of the renal system.
