Nephrology service at shanty memorial hospital was restricted to inpatient consultation upto 2008. In he year 2008 haemodialysis service started with two dialysis machines in collaboration with shankara kidney foundation. We provided regular maintenance dialysis and acute dialysis.
From 2012 we continued dialysis independently. Currently we have thirteen dialysis machines including one I.C.U. we have thirteen supporting staff to provide routine and emergency dialysis service. We are running three shifts of maintenance dialysis every day. Besides regular dialysis we do plasmapheresis for Neurology and other patients. Recently we have started heamoperfusion treatment for acute poisoning cases which cannot be removed by standard dialysis.
