Dialysis

Our Dialysis Department provides comprehensive and specialized care for dialysis patients. Our experienced team of nephrologists, nurses, and healthcare professionals is committed to providing patients with kidney disease with the best possible care. We strive to achieve optimal outcomes and improve the quality of life for dialysis patients by using cutting-edge technology and a patient-centred approach.

What exactly is Dialysis?

Dialysis is a medical process that removes waste products, excess fluid, and toxins from the blood when the kidneys can no longer function normally. It is a life-saving process for patients suffering from end-stage renal disease (ESRD) or acute kidney injury (AKI), supporting key biological processes.

Conditions Treated:

Our dialysis department is prepared to treat a variety of kidney-related illnesses that may necessitate dialysis treatment. Some of the most prevalent conditions we treat are:

  • Dialysis is the primary treatment for individuals with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), a stage of kidney illness in which the kidneys have lost their ability to function adequately. Dialysis aids in the maintenance of fluid and electrolyte balance as well as the removal of waste materials from the blood
  • Acute Kidney Injury (AKI): Dialysis may be necessary temporarily in cases of acute kidney injury, such as severe infections, kidney infections, or drug-induced kidney damage until the kidneys restore their normal function
  • Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD): Dialysis may be required to support life and manage chronic kidney disease in advanced stages when the kidneys’ function is substantially reduced

Dialysis Indications:

Dialysis may be recommended for patients who meet certain criteria and have clinical problems. Dialysis is indicated for the following reasons:

  • Decreased Urine Output: Dialysis may be required to eliminate waste products and excess fluids from the body if a patient’s urine output dramatically drops or stops entirely, indicating kidney disease
  • High Waste Product Levels: Elevated waste product levels in the blood, such as urea and creatinine, may signal the need for dialysis to eliminate these toxins from the body
  • Fluid Overload: Dialysis may be required to remove excess fluid if a patient develops severe fluid overload, which causes symptoms such as oedema, shortness of breath, or high blood pressure
  • Imbalances in electrolytes may necessitate dialysis. Excessive potassium levels (hyperkalemia) or excessive amounts of acid in the blood (metabolic acidosis) are both severe electrolyte abnormalities

Dialysis Procedures:

Surya Hospitals offers a variety of dialysis treatments to meet the specific needs of our patients. These are some examples:

  • Hemodialysis is a type of dialysis in which a machine called a hemodialyzer filters the blood to eliminate waste materials, excess fluid, and toxins. Blood is extracted from the patient’s body, processed by the dialyzer, and returned to the patient. Hemodialysis is usually done three times each week, with each session lasting several hours
  • Peritoneal Dialysis: Peritoneal dialysis is an alternate approach that uses the peritoneum, the lining of the patient’s abdomen, as a natural filter. A catheter is used to deliver dialysis solution into the abdomen, and waste materials and excess fluid move from the blood vessels in the peritoneum into the dialysis solution. This procedure, known as an exchange, is usually repeated numerous times over the day
  • Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT): CRRT is a type of dialysis that is mostly utilized in critically ill patients who have acute renal injury. It is a continuous blood purification technique that allows for the slow and gentle elimination of waste materials and fluid over an extended period of time. CRRT is frequently performed in the intensive care unit (ICU) and is adjusted dependent on the clinical condition of the patient
  • Home Dialysis: For eligible patients, we provide home dialysis options such as hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis. Patients can benefit from home dialysis in the comfort of their own homes, giving them more flexibility and convenience
