  • Kidney Biopsy - A kidney biopsy is the removal of a small piece of kidney tissue for examination to diagnose the condition of kidney disease. There are two types of kidney biopsies.
  • Percutaneous Biopsy – This is performed under local anesthesia. The doctor inserts a biopsy needle through the skin to the surface of the kidney. Ultrasound images are then used to find the proper location. Sometimes another imaging method, such as CT, is used.
  • Open Biopsy - It's a surgical biopsy, performed under general anaesthesia. The surgeon makes a small surgical cut (incision). This method is used when a larger piece of tissue is needed.
  • Intravenous Pyelogram - An intravenous pyelogram (IVP) is a special x-ray exam of the kidneys, bladder, and ureters (the tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder). An injection of X-ray contrast medium is given to a patient via a needle or cannula into the vein, typically in the antecubital fossa of arm. The contrast is excreted or removed from the bloodstream via the kidneys, and the contrast media becomes visible on X-rays almost immediately after injection. X-rays are taken at specific time intervals to capture the contrast as it travels through the different parts of the urinary system. This gives a comprehensive view of the patient's anatomy and some information on the functioning of the renal system.
  • Temporary HD catheter Insertion - This is used to start acute or chronic hemodialysis in a new patient. It is inserted in the neck or groin.
  • Permcatheter insertion - A permanent catheter is inserted surgically under local anesthesia for patients requiring maintenance hemodialysis in OT. This is used if a permanent vascular access is not possible or fails in dialysis patients.
