Welcome to NKPC Kidney Clinic
Whenever the Kidney becomes weak and is unable to filter the blood, then the kidney needs medical management under the care of a nephrologist. Initial stages are managed by medications only which help increase the longevity of the kidney but in later stages dialysis may be required, and in some cases renal replacement therapy by transplantation is needed.
Dialysis means purification and filtration of the blood by a machine. Whenever the kidney is weak and the blood becomes impure then the patient is recommended for dialysis. Dialysis means the patient’s blood is drawn into a machine where it is filtered and then returned to the patient in a more pure form therefore the patient is able to excrete the impurities in the blood.
Dr Tanmoy Mukhopadhyay (MD DNB nephrology and transplant medicine) is incharge of the nephrology services at NKPC

We are in the process of applying for a transplant license, once the swasthya bhabhann clears our application we can then begin the process of kidney transplantation at our center.
