The Nephrology Department at Apollo Gleneagles Hospital, Kolkata, takes care of the two super filters of the body - the Kidneys. The kidneys remove toxic chemicals from the blood and eliminates them, thus keeping the body clean and healthy. Besides this the kidneys also play the vital role of maintaining fluid balance and blood pressure of your body and secreting some important hormones. Thus undoubtedly, kidneys are vital organs.
We offer comprehensive services for the care of kidneys:
Kidney transplantation is done with a high success rate on both adult and children. Careful donor selection, intensive post-operative care and rapid rehabilitation help our patients get back to normal and active life. Traveling abroad, handling hectic work schedule and leading a family life – our patients enjoy a normal and active life in every way.
Laparoscopic Donor Nephrectomy – a breakthrough
Kidney donation is a noble act and we encourage related donors to come forward. Conventionally donor kidneys are removed through an incision of 8-10 inches , which takes longer time to heal and leaves unsightly scar. At our hospital, we offer laparoscopic donor nephrectomy where the donor kidney is removed by laparoscopic surgery.
