Testimonials

I found out that I needed an operation for a back problem which was causing severe pain to my left leg from the sciatic nerve. After speaking to my GP and realizing I was getting nowhere I decided to take the matter into my own hands as I could hardly walk. After speaking to private consultants and realizing that without private medical insurance I was not going to be seen to in this country without shelling out around 20,000 I decided to look elsewhere. I decided to look into having the operation privately in India and was fortunate to come across Mediescapes India. From my initial enquiry when I e-mailed my MRI results to Mediescapes India I was amazed ..more.

Common diseases like diabetes, hypertension and chronic glomerulo-nephritis can lead to permanent loss of renal functions - with dialysis and renal transplantation being the frequent outcome. The emergence of new therapeutic interventions has created opportunities in India to manage the progression of renal diseases. ISO certified major hospitals in India like Manipal Hospital and Sir Ganga Ram Hospital have departments of Nephrology and Organ Transplant equipped with the latest computerized dialysis machines, reverse osmosis water plant to provide pure and trace element-free water supply, as well as state-of-the-art facilities in the operating rooms and Transplant Intensive Care Units.

For those who need renal replacement therapy, services like Hemodialysis, Chronic Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) and Transplantation are also available. In addition to the basic hemodialysis facilities, the patients' requirements for other modalities of treatment such as Continuous Arterio-Venous Haemofilteration (CAVH), Continuous Veno-Venous Haemofilteration (CVVH), Continuous Cycler-Assisted Peritioneal Dialysis (CCPD) are also available. Patients can also avail of the bicarbonate dialysis facility at Manipal Hospital, Bangalore. Round the clock service is available at these hospitals for the critically ill patients in the intensive care units who may need fluid, electrolyte management and renal supportive therapy. The cost of getting a dialysis is around US$ 50 to US$ 75 per dialysis whereas the same costs about $ 300 in the U.S.A. Similarly a kidney transplant package in India is available for around US$ 15,000 to US$ 18,000 which is comparatively much cheaper than what it would cost abroad based on variable factors. A liver transplant package is available in India anywhere in between US$ 23,000 to US$ 90,500/- based on variable factors ***

Nephrology is the medical subspecialty that deals with the kidneys, especially their functions and diseases. The term "nephrology" is derived from the Greek word for kidney, "nephros." Another term commonly used in reference to the kidney is "renal," as in "renal failure." This term is derived from the Latin for kidney, "renes."

Urology is the science dealing with urinary tract surgery. It also deals with all problems relating to the male genital system such as sexual impotence, infertility and prostate problems

The department of nephrology at our institutions is a professionally managed unit, equipped with a team of skilled and dedicated doctors and paramedical staff. Common diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and chronic glomerulo-nephritis can lead to permanent loss of renal functions - with dialysis and renal transplantation being the outcome.
