Dr. Ziauddin Hospital offers hemodialysis at North Nazimabad and Clifton campuses.
The hemodialysis units are among the biggest hemodialysis centers in Karachi performing an average of more than 1500 sessions per month. It offers both acute and chronic hemodialysis all year rounds as well as on emergency basis. The dialysis unit is staffed with well trained technicians, who work under foreign trained nephrologists. Separate machines are used for hepatitis B and C patients as a result seroconversion rates are very low for our centre. Patients are attended in a timely manner by fellows and consultants.
If required, facilities for acute peritoneal dialysis are also available.
