National Deceased Donor Card for Kidney Donation

The National Deceased Donor Card for kidney donation after death was launched on the 08th of March 2016 by the National Institute for Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation under the auspices of the Ministry of Health. The Director General of Health Services was the first signatory to the programme. We are now in the process of educating and recruiting potential donors for donation after death, similar to eye donation after death.

Kidney Transplantation

The rising rates of renal failure in this decade have led to an increased demand for donor kidneys. Kidney transplantation is usually done within compatible people. The donor and the recipient and the recipient are matched well before the transplantation. The Institute performs all types of kidney transplants namely live donor and diseased donor transplants. NINDT is the largest centre in the country for this procedu

Advanced Dialysis and Interventional Care

Hemodialysis is the most common treatment for kidney failure and is a vital lifesaving treatment for patients with end stage kidney disease who have lost kidney function. Dialysis helps extend the life of kidney patients by removing waste and excess fluid from the blood, and is regarded as a holding measure until a kidney transplant can be performed.The Institute’s outpatient dialysis centre caters to 60 patients every day. Dialysis facilities are also provided for inward patients including intensive care unit. Our dialysis care is provided by a seasoned team of professionals including nephrologists, nurses, and support staff.

We arrange Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) services on request. CAPD can be done in the comfort of your own home, and does not require an external machine to filter your blood. This method uses your body’s abdominal lining to filter wa

Live Donor Kidney Transplantion

A living donor may be someone in your immediate or extended family, or it may be your spouse or a close friend. In some cases, a living donor may even be a stranger who wishes to donate a kidney to someone in need of a transplant.

One advantage of receiving a kidney from a living donor is that this type of kidney has been shown to last longer than a kidney from a deceased donor. Another advantage is that the operation can be planned to suit your schedule, since it is not necessary to wait for a kidney to become available
from a deceased donor. Some research shows that an early kidney transplant, with little or no time spent on dialysis, can lead to better long-term health.

A disadvantage of living donation is that a healthy person must undergo surgery to remove a healthy kidney. The donor will need some recovery time before returning to work and other activities. However, recent advances in surgical techniques for kidney removal allow for very small incisions (often called minimally invasive surgery). This may offer shorter hospital stays and recovery time for donors. Living donors usually experience positive feelings about their courageous gift
