Renal transplantation at MIOT hospitals
So far 214 kidney transplantations have been done at MIOT Hospitals, since June 2008.

The department also provides supportive care to critically ill patients who might be in need of a special dialysis called CRRT - Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy. Only few centres in India have this specialized form of dialysis.

Facilities

The Nephrology Department is supported by the best technology like the

Latest 4D USG machine

MRI

750 HD CT Scan

Nuclear Radiography

Immunology Institute & Histopathology department

 

Academic Programmes
The MIOT Institute of Nephrology is all set to start academic programmes for both graduates and medical graduates. The aim is to train “barefoot nephrologists” who will practice in rural areas, so that kidney diseases can be detected at an early stage and referred to higher institutions.

 

New Treatments

The unit has ongoing research in producing resins which remove various toxins from the body. This will delay/replace dialysis.

MIOT Hospitals has been the pioneer in India to start Kidney Transplant across Blood Groups using the Japanese technology. The first such transplantation was done from a B group donor to O group recipient four years ago. Several such transplantations across different combinations of blood groups have been done successfully so far. The donors and patients who have undergone such transplantations were honoured during the World Kidney Day, 2012. For the first time in the country the data of such transplantations has been published scientifically in the Journal of Kidney Transplantation.

Nephrology Sparce Surgery for kidney tumor will also be starting shortly. This surgery will remove only the tumour and preserve the kidney.
