Dialysis & Kidney Transplant in India

Common diseases like diabetes, hypertension and chronic
glomerulo-nephritis can lead to permanent
loss of renal - 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
, 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
Veno-Venous Haemofilteration
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$ 7500 which
is comparatively much cheaper than what it would cost
abroad. (CAVH),

Diabetes Mellitus is a condition characterized by raised or
increased fasting blood sugar (>126 mg/dl) and / or >200 mg/dl
two hours after a meal / any random value. You may
or may not have classical symptoms. It may be detected
during routine medical check-up.

Diabetes in children
Childhood Diabetes Mellitus is traditionally called Type1 Diabetes
or Juvenile Diabetes where pancreas fails to produce the key enzyme
Insulin, as a result the child becomes dependent on Insulin for whole
of his/her life. We all know the incidence of Diabetes is increasing
very rapidly all over the world but fortunately we do not have
much cases of type 1 Diabetes in our country as opposed to the west.

Manipal Hospital (Bangalore), Indraprastha Apollo Hospital
(New Delhi) has the largest renal transplant program in the country,
having successfully performed both living related and cadaveric
transplants. a host of urological and nephrological problems find
a cure through the availability of medical expertise.

Some of Nephrology & Urology related treatments professionally
done in India at Manipal Hospital (Bangalore) as well as
Indraprastha Apollo Hospital (New Delhi) are;

++ renal transplantation
++ dialysis
++ graft survival
++ transplant surgeries
++ pediatric kidney transplant
++ pediatric kidney transplantation
++ cadaveric donation
and simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation to name a few.

Current legal Status of Organ Transplant Law in India is
as follows;
"As per the rules of our country, only a relative who is
compatible can donate a kidney to the patient. Among the
relatives, there is a category called the near relatives which
as parents, siblings, children and spouse. People in this
category can donate the kidney if they are medically
compatible without the permission of the Government of
India. Any other relative not belonging to this category
in addition to being medically suitable, the permission
from the respective Government needs to be taken if it is
case of foreign nationals.

Please note: We can send you the relevant documents
that are needed for near related and non near related
transplants upon request based on recognised transplant
centers in India
