Specialty Centers > Nephrology
We are proud to be the ONLY hospital in Guyana that has a fully functioning dialysis unit. We currently have 3 dialysis machines, and the services are provided on a 24 hour basis. The department is headed by a consultant Nephrologist, and is also staffed with trained dialysis technicians and nurses.
We are also the ONLY hospital in Guyana to be performing Kidney Transplants. The Transplants are done by a team of transplant surgeons from the Walter Reid Army Hospital in Washington, D.C. in coordination with our doctors and staff. The transplants are done at a fraction of what they would cost in the United States, however we provide the quality of care on par with that of international standards. All Transplants that we have done thus far have been successful, and we are very proud with the progress that the program continues to make.
- Dialysis on a 24 hour basis.
- Every month we do approximately 200 dialysis sessions.
- Very competitive dialysis rates.
