Services Provided


Dialysis

Mallya hospital offers state of the art Hemodialysis, CRRT, Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis(CAPD) and Renal Transplantation.

Hemodialysis

Hemodialysis cleans and filters your blood using a machine to temporarily rid your body of harmful wastes, extra salt, and excess water. Hemodialysis helps control blood pressure and helps your body keep the proper balance of important chemicals such as potassium, sodium, calcium, and bicarbonate.

At Mallya Hospital , Hemodialysis is carried out in a room with polite and well-trained dialysis technicians and nurses, round the clock, in three 'shifts'.Fresenius hemodialysis machines.

Disposable artificial kidneys and tubing ensure safe, predictable fluid removal and dialysis.

Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD)–

Peritoneal Dialysis is another procedure that removes extra water, wastes and chemicals from your body. This type of dialysis uses the lining of your abdomen to filter your blood. This lining is called the peritoneal membrane and acts as the artificial kidney.

CAPD is the most common type of peritoneal dialysis. It requires no machine and can be done in any clean, well-lit place. With CAPD, your blood is continually being cleaned. The dialysis solution passes from a plastic bag through the catheter and into your abdomen, where it stays for several hours with the catheter sealed. The period that dialysis solution is in your abdomen is called the dwell time.

Next, you drain the dialysis solution back into the bag for disposal. You then use the same catheter to refill your abdomen with fresh dialysis solution so that the cleaning process can begin again.

Mallya Hospital also offers the option of CAPD. Skilled surgeons insert the catheter and dedicated staff train patients to dialyze themselves at home. CAPD fluids by leading companies like Baxter, Claris are available for individual needs for home delivery.

Renal Transplantation

Kidney transplantation services started in Mallya Hospital in 1991. has vast experience in Kidney Transplantation. Kidney transplantation is a surgical operation in which the surgeon places a healthy kidney from another person into your body. The donated kidney does the work that your two failed kidneys generally perform.

The surgeon places the new kidney inside your lower abdomen and connects the artery and vein of the new kidney to your artery and vein. Your blood flows through the donated kidney, which makes urine, just like your own kidneys did when they were healthy. The new kidney may start working right away or may take up to a few weeks to make urine. Unless your own kidneys are causing infection or high blood pressure, they are left in place. So, your own diseased kidneys are rarely removed.
