Involved in patient care through clinical nephrology, haemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, critical care nephrology and kidney transplant, it provides both, indoor and outpatient, care for patients with kidney disease. Thousands of haemodialysis sessions are performed every month which includes outpatient haemodialysis, indoor haemodialysis, and SLED and CRRT modalities for dialysis in ICU patients.
