Dialysis & Transplant
Kidney disease is a worldwide health problem, where 10% of the world’s population suffers from chronic kidney disease. In Sri Lanka approximately 1 in 5 people suffer from some form of kidney disease. Approximately 90% of kidney disease cases eventually end up as overall kidney failure or end stage kidney disease, where kidneys lose their function and have difficulty eliminating waste products and fluid from the body. Patients with kidney failure or end stage kidney disease can survive for longer periods of time and have a better quality of life with treatments such as dialysis and kidney transplants.
Western Hospital provides excellent care for patients (both adults and children) with kidney disease. Our highly experienced professionals perform dialysis and kidney transplants and help you achieve optimal kidney health.
