KIDNEY CARE AT FORTIS INTERNATIONAL CARE

Kidney Stones, also known as Renal Calculi, are solid deposits of crystals, usually composed of calcium oxalate which typically occur in kidneys, but can also develop in other parts of the urinary tract such as the bladder, urethra and the ureter. These stones can form in different sizes and are extremely painful. While smaller stones can be treated by drinking adequate amounts of water or by medications like certain pain-relievers, diuretics and alpha-blocker drugs, stones which are larger in size require specialized medical interventions.

Fortis International Care is known for its kidney stone treatment all over the country. The common procedures adopted at Fortis Hospitals to treat kidney stones are:

  • Lithotripsy: Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy uses sound waves to create strong vibrations that can break up large stones into smaller pieces which can then be easily expelled from the body. This procedure takes up to an hour to complete and the patient may be sedated before it begins.
  • Ureteroscopy: When the stone is close to the bladder, this procedure is performed. It involves inserting a thin tube through the urinary tract and breaking up the stones and removing the smaller fragments through the tube.
  • Surgery: A surgical procedure called percutaneous nephrolithotomy, by which kidney stones are removed through a small incision in the person’s back may be performed if the lithotripsy was unsuccessful.

Fortis International Care is one of the premier leading kidney hospitals in India equipped with skilled faculty and the latest facilities needed to treat the entire spectrum of kidney diseases, including:

  • Chronic Kidney Disease: It implies damage of a permanent nature to the kidneys, which is irreversible and happens over a period of time. This results in an increased kidney damage and worsening of blood pressure, anemia and bone disease. Fortis International Care is one of the hospitals for kidney care with qualified and experienced kidney specialists who are capable of handling any complication.
  • Bladder Cancer: A type of urinary tract cancer originating in the bladder, an organ located in the pelvic area that stores urine before it is expelled from the body.
  • Urinary Incontinence: This is defined an involuntary passage of urine, commonly occurring in elderly people.
  • Impotence: The inability of a man to achieve and maintain an erection that is sufficient for satisfactory sexual intercourse.

KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION

The main function of the kidneys is to purify the blood by filtering out the waste products from the blood before converting it to urine. Kidney Transplantation is a treatment of the last resort, opted for when the existing kidneys are incapable of functioning properly.
