Department of Nephrology
Department of Nephrology started in the year 1995 with only one Assistant Professor and only one Medical officer. In 1998 a 12 bedded chamber and 4 hemodialysis machines were added. At the moment our department is the largest Nephrology unit in the province with 45 beds and 26 Hemodialysis machines. This all was achieved by the grace of Allah and the efforts of the founding fathers, despite great difficulties and challenges.
We are providing life saving services to the ailing humanity round the clock, 24 hours a day, and seven days a week. Our hemodialysis unit works round the clock, non-stop. Double lumen insertions, Renal biopsies, Cyst aspirations and Percutaneous Nephrostomies are performed on a daily basis. We have recently acquired the facilities to perform CRRT (continuous renal replacement therapy).
Our family has grown to 4 full time consultants with 2 professors, 1 Associate and assistant Professor each. We have 2 CPSP accredited supervisors for training in Nephrology with more than 18 Trainees actively being trained in this specialty.
This unit has until now produced more than 20 FCPS consultants serving Pakistan and abroad. These include both FCPS Nephrology as well as Internal Medicine. This is achieved with excellent working environment provided by our family, where everyone is encouraged to develop self confidence and independent decision making ability.
This is the only team in the whole province with extensive experience in interventional nephrology procedures such as Permacatheter insertions and Acute Peritoneal Dialysis.
We are very enthusiastic about future. We aim to serve the most deserving among humanity, with all our heart. We are actively pursuing the initiation of renal transplantation services for our poor patients in the near future.
We also intend to develop full interventional nephrology spectrum, including a CAPD program and a utilization of cardiology angiography suit for nephrology related AV access procedures, invasive ventilation and plasma exchange facilities.
We aim to be at forefront of Nephrology.
Sky is the limit……………. The world is not enough.
