Nephrology/Haemodialysis

The department is headed by Dr.Premkumar DM Nephrology and has occupied a special place in the hospital ever since the first dialysis in the district was done here in 1987. Kanyakumari district along with other parts of southern tamil nadu has a high prevalence of chronic renal disease and dialysis has become an integral part of management of many of these patients. The department also has facilities for diagnostic investigations including renal biopsies, peritoneal and haemodialysis and also has a licence to perform renal transplantation. The heamodialysis unit currently has 10 HD machines and does approximately 500 dialysis per month.
