The unit has six dedicated machines for HIV positive patients, the first of its kind in India. The unit also provides dialysis for Hepatitis B patients as well.
A person suffering from kidney failure can survive only when he or she undergoes dialysis or a kidney transplantation. Haemodialysis involves the use of an artificial kidney termed "Dialyser", which emulates the functions of a normal kidney. It needs to be done 2-3 times a week and is an expensive process. This was not affordable for the under privileged.
The unit was set up in the year 2006 in association with TANKER foundation. The unit renders dialysis facility to the under privileged people of the society at subsidized rates and free of cost for deserving cases.
Our Dialysis unit employ state of the art technology and have RO filtration plants and are fully air conditioned. Dialysis is offered twice a week. The unit also provides free and subsidised erythropoetin injections that are otherwise prohibitively expensive.
At present we have 26 dialysis machines installed and undertake about 70 dialysis every day. So far, this unit has done more than 100,000 Dialysis over the period of last 14 years.
