Redefining personalised care to heal & feel better

People with chronic kidney problems have a hard life. Leading a normal life and doing things like exercising, washing or even drinking water more than the recommended quantities can become painful. Add to it the stress of staying on dialysis for 4-5 hours a day at least 2 times a week. All this can lower the quality of life. But not when you have Regency Healthcare taking care of you!

Our specialists have the expertise and advanced training in performing the most complex of transplant procedures with excellent outcome. Our team of specialists work together to coordinate every aspect of your recovery and provide you with compassionate follow-up care that is essential to help you get back to normal life.

Patient testimonials

Here’s what our patients have to say about our services..

My partner and I visited the Regency City Clinic in Kanpur following several failed fertility treatments at an earlier fertility clinic for high oestrogen levels. The staff members were very professional and empathetic. The preliminary visit resulted in a gynaecological test, that led to the early diagnosis of a mild ovarian dermoid cyst. Following the removal of the cyst, we were successful in our first IVF trial. I have been blessed with a baby boy 2 months ago. Thank you, Regency!

Kanpur

I was very apprehensive about being diagnosed with painful stones in my kidney. I was afraid of undergoing surgery. After, meeting with renal specialists at Regency, I found out that every stone does not require an operation. With modern techniques of ESWL (Lithotripsy) PCNL & URS, which are non-invasive, I finally got rid of the stones for all times.


Rahul Trivedi

I came to Regency Hospital, Kanpur for the treatment of my liver condition. We learned about Regency through friends in my workplace. The team at Regency provided me with top-notch service and personalized attention, much more than I expected. The staff is very helpful and cooperative. I already have and will surely recommend this remarkable health institution to my family and friends in the future.


Udit Kumar

Kanpur

I had terrible pelvic pain from the last 6-7 months, and that’s when I was diagnosed with ovarian cysts. Thinking and reading about the cysts made me horrified, but I wanted to cure myself as soon as possible. My aunt, being a doctor herself, recommended Regency Hospital for the treatment of my cysts, and I went ahead with her opinion. From one month, I have been regular with my periods, I have no pelvic pain and I have gotten rid of the cysts. Thanks, Regency!

How will I know if I have kidney disease?

Kidneys filter the blood and play an important role in the regulation of blood pressure and other bodily functions, therefore kidney disease can cause a wide variety of complications. If you are experiencing the below-mentioned signs, then you should immediately visit a Kidney Care Centre.

  • Blood in urine
  • Change in colour/appearance of urine
  • Dizziness/Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • High blood pressure
  • Puffiness around legs & ankles
How is kidney disease treated?

Any Kidney Care Centre’s treatment will vary based on your stage of the disease and the underlying cause, such as diabetes or high blood pressure. However, if the disease progresses and the kidneys are no longer functioning- a condition known as an end-stage renal disease (ESRD)- either dialysis or a kidney transplant would be needed for you to survive.

Can I still have a good life if I need dialysis?

Dialysis is a life-saving process that is expected to increase your life expectancy if you have the end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Most people can remain on dialysis for many years and have a good quality of life.

Should I consider a kidney transplant instead of dialysis?

When kidney function falls below 10% of normal, dialysis or a kidney transplant is most often needed. Dialysis is a way to pump your blood through a machine that filters out the waste and returns the blood to your body. While a kidney transplant is a surgery to place a healthy kidney into a person with kidney failure. Even people who are waiting for a kidney transplant may need dialysis while waiting. You will be first evaluated by the transplant team to make sure that you are a good candidate for a kidney transplant. The balance of potential risks and benefits varies depending on your age and other health conditions.

How long will I wait on the list?

A kidney transplant has a long waiting. You are prioritized based on how long you’ve been waiting, your blood type, your current health, and other factors. We strongly advise patients to consider talking to family members, friends, and others about living kidney donation. Living kidney donation can dramatically reduce waiting time and may help the patient to avoid dialysis.

What are some ways to take proper care of your kidneys?

Some of the suggested ways for kidney care are:

  • Controlling high blood pressure, blood sugar
  • Eating a healthy diet (or lower-protein, or lower salt diet)
  • Losing weight
  • Starting some type of movement or exercise
  • Quit smoking
  • Avoiding certain pain medications
