The Dialysis Unit at the Nanavati Max Institute of Renal Sciences & Transplant offers the most comprehensive medical care in Mumbai for patients suffering from end-stage renal disease and acute renal failure. Our team of skilled nephrologists and trained dialysis staff use a multidisciplinary approach to diagnose, treat, and manage patients with a variety of chronic or acute chronic renal failure conditions requiring dialysis treatment.
The dialysis unit is a state-of-the-art facility providing both hemodialysis and online haemodiafiltration as per AAMI standards. We follow a coordinated patient-centric multidisciplinary approach that starts right from the diagnosis and goes to kidney treatment and aftercare. Our doctors evaluate a patient’s condition by several considerations such as availability, convenience, underlying medical problems, and age, for hemodiafiltration.
