The department of Nephrology India was started in 2010 at Pulse Super Speciality Hospital, and was the first hospital to provide maintenance haemodialysis services in non government sector in Ranchi. Our H.O.D. has pioneered the art of vascular access by nephrologists in India, which is now being taken over by nephrologists all over the world. In 2010, kidney transplantation service was established with joining of a leading transplant surgeon. Another young and dynamic nephrologist joined the team in 2010 and was instrumental in realizing the dream of chronic peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) and was first to present data on CAPD with indigenous material available at various conferences in 2010. Later in 2011 and in 2012 two very competent and energetic nephrologists joined to strengthen the department. One of our nephrologist India has taken the challenge of providing dialytic care to critically sick patients and added state-of-the-art continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) service in the department. The latest to join the team is “our own grown product” and we admire his sincerity, hard work and honesty. All these faculty members work in unison and the hospital is proud of their exemplary team work. The department is always focussed to provide high quality medical care with a human touch. The department is one of the first few centres in India to be accredited by the National Board of Examinations for training in post-doctoral courses in nephrology and our trained doctors and are much sought after and holding key positions in major hospitals in India.
