Plasma Dialysis (Plasmapheresis)

Plasmapheresis is a process in which the liquid part of the blood, or plasma, is separated from the blood cells. Typically, the plasma is replaced with another solution such as saline or albumin, or the plasma is treated and then returned to your body. If you’re sick, your plasma can contain antibodies that attack the immune system. A machine can be used to remove the affected plasma and replace it with good plasma or a plasma substitute.

Kidney
Transplant

A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure to place a healthy kidney from a living or deceased donor into a person whose kidneys no longer function properly. When your kidneys lose their filtering ability, harmful levels of fluid and waste accumulate in your body, which can raise your blood pressure and result in kidney failure (end-stage kidney disease). End-stage renal disease occurs when the kidneys have lost about 90% of their ability to function normally.

Combined Kidney & Liver Transplant

Combined liver & kidney transplant is a complex surgery that is known to benefit patients who have diseases related to both the organs. This also includes patients with potentially reversible kidney failure, and has been receiving dialysis for more than two months. It has been found that there might be certain long-term benefits to combined liver & kidney transplant, in comparison to only a kidney transplant. The patients also show a lower incidence of chronic injury to the kidney,.
