Department of Nephrology is one the premier renal centres in the country in terms of skill and experience. The department runs one of the most successful renal transplantation programmes in the country attracting patients from the entire state of Kerala, neighbouring states as well as from abroad. Of the nearly 120-130 transplants performed at the centre every year many have complex issues (sensitized, elderly and paediatric transplants). The centre has a large number of patients with chronic disease (CKD) on follow up and the comprehensive management strategies to reduce the progression of CKD is another highlight. A large maintenance haemodialysis programme, CAPD programme, dedicated machines for performing CVVH, CVVHD, CVVHDF and plasmapheresis are the other notable features. Renal biopsy service with electron microscopy is also available.
