Kidney Transplantation

Manipal Hospital HAL Airport Road, Bangalore has been running a successful Kidney Transplantation programme ever since its inception in 1991. Under the guidance of well qualified and highly experienced Nephrologists and Transplant Surgeons, Manipal Hospital offers quality services in line with best practices of global standards. Listed below are a few milestones Manipal Hospital has achieved in Renal Transplantation.

  • Performed over 1,500 transplants
  • Performed the first Cadaver Transplant in Karnataka
  • Performed the rare double kidney transplant from a paediatric cadaver donor to an adult
  • Leading Institute in the state in Nephrology and Transplant Care
  • Laparoscopic Donor Nephrectomy (LDN) is performed routinely which is associated with decreased pain and early recovery as compared to traditional Open Donor Nephrectomy
  • First to perform Single Incision Laparoscopic Donor Nephrectomy (SILDN) in South India. In suitable donors, SILDN is performed through the belly button leaving no scars on the abdomen. This provides the least pain and fastest recovery for the donor.
  • One of the first centre’s to perform Paired Exchange Donor (SWAP) Programme
  • Recognized by National Board of Examination
  • Accreditation for ISO 9001:2008 and NABH standards
  • The only centre in Karnataka to have trained Nephropathologist providing Nephro Pathology Services
  • In-house full-fledged Immunology Lab to perform HLA and Cross Matching

Robotics in Urology

Robotic surgery or robot assisted surgery are terms for various technological developments that currently are developed to support a range of surgical procedures.

Robot assisted surgery was developed to overcome limitations of minimally invasive surgery. Instead of directly moving the instruments, the surgeon uses a computer console to manipulate the instruments attached to multiple robot arms. The computer translates the surgeon’s movements, which are then carried out on the patient by the robot.

Some major advantages of robotic surgery are

  • Precision
  • Miniaturization
  • Smaller incisions
  • Decreased blood loss
  • Less pain and quicker healing time

Robotic surgery has been successfully applied for a variety of indications in Urology and chief amongst which are:

Kidney:

  • Partial Nephrectomy for Kidney Tumours(removal only of kidney tumour with preservation of kidney)
  • Radical Nephrectomy (complete kidney removal for large kidney tumours)
  • Pyeloplasty: (repair of congenital kidney obstruction)

Ureter:

  • Radical Nephro-Urterectomy(removal of kidney and ureter for tumors of the ureter)
  • Ureteric Re-implantation (repair of obstruction caused by ureteric strictures or congenital problems of the ureter)

Prostate:

  • Radical Prostatectomy (complete removal of the prostate for prostate cancer)

Urinary Bladder

  • Radical Cystectomy and Neo-bladder for Bladder Cancer
  • Partial Cystectomy (partial removal of the bladder)
  • Sacrocolpopexy (repair of bladder and uterine prolapse)
