Patient education programmes & preventive nephrology

Utilize cutting-edge technology

  • Computed Tomography (CT)

    Computed Tomography is an innovative non-invasive imaging technique that provides a complete 3-Dimensional visual representation of the internal organs. The device keeps rotating, obtaining data from different viewpoints which is then processed by a computer to produce a slice-wise imagery of your organ being diagnosed.

  • PET CT

    PET (Positron Emission Tomography) is an imaging technique used to observe metabolic processes in a human body. CT (Computed Tomography) X-ray scan is also performed on the patient during the same session and with the same machine. The imaging thus obtained helps identify abnormal anatomy and metabolic activity, indicating cancerous growth.

  • MRI TRUS Fusion biopsy

    TRUS stands for Transrectal Ultrasonography. When it is merged with imaging from MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), smallest of abnormalities can be detected, increasing the sensitivity of the diagnosis, helping in early and accurate diagnosis.

  • Bone Scan

    Two X-ray shafts of light, consisting of different energy levels, image the bones of the patient. The created pictures help identify the bone loss and helps quantify bone mineral density.

Avail advanced treatment and procedures

  • Percutaneous Nephrostomy

    In a percutaneous nephrostomy, a special medical instrument is passed through the patient’s skin all the way into the kidney. This procedure is done in order to remove stones from the patient’s kidney. To make sure the catheter is inserted correctly, a special type of X-ray is used.

  • Adrenalectomy

    Adrenalectomy refers to the surgical removal of the two adrenals in a person’s body. Adrenals are the two organs located above each kidney, and are responsible for secreting hormones that regulates a person’s immune system, blood sugar levels, and metabolism.

  • Nephroureterectomy

     Nephroureterectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, performed to remove the renal pelvis, ureter, kidney, and the bladder cuff of the patient. It is most commonly performed on patients with a cancer in their kidney.

  • Dialysis

    Dialysis is used to carry out the basic functions of a person’s kidneys when they stop working properly. Dialysis filters and then purifies the blood using a machine. If a person does not opt for dialysis after his/her kidney’s fails to function, waste products including salt get accumulated in the blood and poison the body.
