HAEMODIALYSIS CENTRE

This Centre is located on the 3rd Floor of Consultant Block 1 and has a breath-taking view of the Kuala Lumpur's skyline. Although ensconed away from the main flow of the hustle and bustle of the hospital, the unit is linked to other support services departments such as Intensive Care Unit, Operation Theatre etc. The strategic location provides privacy for our clients who seek regular treatment here.

Technology

A reliable and efficient Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water Purification System has been installed to ensure delivery of safe and good quality dialysate to the clients. Only Bicarbonate Dialysis is performed here. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for our patients, not just merely performing the mechanics of haemodialysis! Hence, each dialysis session is tailored to the individual needs of the client.

Health Campaign

We have initiated several health campaigns on a small scale to educate the patients with regards to their disease aetiology and issues such as diet, improving their physical, mental and emotional well-being are also addressed. We are also in the midst of setting up a support group for our existing patients and new ones who have to go on the chronic maintenance haemodialysis programme to provide moral support amongst themselves.

With a good team of professionals comprising of trained and experienced staff rendering the service and care, we want to ensure that our patients are well-dialysed and live productive lives. Thus, most of our disposables are single-used for the purpose of increasing efficiency in dialysis and as a means of controlling the spread of blood-borne infections.

Dialysis Session

We perform 2 sessions of haemodialysis per day except on Sundays. On Public Holidays, the unit remains open for treatment as well. When the need arises, we will open for late evening shifts. There is always one staff who stands on-call for 24 hours for any emergency. We do cater for foreigntourists who are visiting the region with prior appointment.

We have 13 machines and the unit is opened daily (except Sunday) from 8.30 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. Our price ranges from RM200 to RM300 per session according to the medical problems of an individual.

Our Dialysis Centre provides isolation facility for Hepatitis B patients.

Lithotripsy Services

Lithotripsy Centre is for non-surgical treatment of kidney and bladder stones. The Lithotripsy Centre is located opposite the Radiology Department on the ground floor of the Main Lobby.

This centre was open in 1988 and since its inception we have treated more than 8,000 patients. We charge RM1,500.00 for the first blasting and RM100.00 for any subsequent blasting. All patients requiring this treatment has to be referred by the Consultant Urologist who will be with you during the procedure. Please contact ext 603 for our special packages.

Technical Information on Lithotripsy Procedure

Most people know that nowadays, stone in the kidney and ureter are not treated anymore by open surgery but by blasting from outside the body using sound waves generated by ESWL (Extra-corporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy) machines.

However, most people do not know that there are different types of ESWL machines and some are less effective than others in blasting stones in the kidney and ureter. In many well known hospitals, supplementary procedures are needed when doing ESWL treatment, and these procedures are often invasive. Besides traumatising the patients, it is more than double the cost of treatment. Examples of these procedures are:-



1- Pushing stones in the ureter back into the kidney before they can be blasted. This requires insertion of a tube up the natural orifice into the ureter under anaesthesia.

2- Inserting a stent (hollow tube) into kidney from below under anaesthesia so that fragments resulting from the blasting of stones do not clog up the flow of urine.

3- Injecting radio-opaque dye into the vein in order to see small or faint stones on x-ray in order to know where to blast the stones. Excess use of x-ray can be harmful to patient.

We, at Tawakkal Hospital, are glad to inform you that with our ESWL machine:

1- Stones in the ureter can be blasted directly without first pushing them back into the kidney.

2- Fragments are usually fine enough to come out without causing obstruction and so a stent is usually not needed, and

3- Our ESWL machine do not use x-ray for stone localisation.
