Our Specialities to Treat Kidney Disorders
Each year, organ and tissue donation saves many lives in India. At Kidney Total Care India, all patients are considered for transplantation, but we inform those who are not suitable for kidney transplantation for any reason. There are some risks involved in transplanting a kidney such as the donor can have Stocks, bleeding, blood clots, heart attack, infection, pneumonia or other problems, so we take intensive care while transplanting a kidney.
In human body, kidneys are two bean-shaped organs which are present on each side of spine. Their function is to remove waste from human body and also it levels out our blood pressure plus keeps our bones strong. A nephrologist suggests a patient for dialysis, when his/her both kidneys stop functioning. The patients having chronic kidney disease is suggested for dialysis and after some time they must be advised for kidney transplant.
If you’re on dialysis, you have three main approaches first is Intermittent hemodialysis (IHD), second is Peritoneal dialysis (PD) and last one is Continuous renal replacement therapies (CRRT). You may go for any of the three, but many experts agree that home dialysis either peritoneal or hemodialysis is the best option for treating kidney failure. During dialysis, you can live full and active life. At Kidney Total Care India, we offer home dialysis treatment at reasonable cost in India.
