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.

Hence, each dialysis session is tailored to the individual needs of the client.
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.
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.

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.
