Renal and dialysis service

Renal and dialysis service

We are home to highly trained and qualified hospital teams in theatre, ITU, pharmacy and the ward work with consultant nephrologists, general physicians, transplant surgeons and renal medicine specialists to provide a multi-disciplinary team approach to renal and kidney care.

Our dedicated dialysis service is open to local private patients, patients from abroad and those visiting London on holiday or business. Our specialist Surgeons and Nephrologists can provide both the dialysis access surgery and the dialysis sessions themselves.

The team at the London Independent Hospital are highly qualified and experienced, and offer kidney transplantation, including HLA and ABO-incompatible transplants, that completes our comprehensive range of renal and kidney services.

Our strength is multidisciplinary working with colleagues in ITU, Cardiology, Urology, Haematology and Neurology to address complex multi-system disorders.

Renal (kidney) transplant

We provide live related and unrelated kidney transplantation to patients who are on dialysis or approaching a severe stage of chronic kidney disease.

In 2016, we launched Plasma Exchange treatment at the hospital – which increases the opportunities for patients to have a successful transplant. This treatment is currently only available in a few specialist NHS hospitals, and was the first in a private hospital setting.

Our multi-disciplinary team comprises of specialist transplant surgeons and nephrologists, a highly trained and qualified theatre & ITU team, a transfusion lab, our Pharmacy department and our trained nursing staff and the RMOs (Resident Medical Officer).

In addition, our transplant services are supported by our cardiology, vascular and imaging services. This helps ensure that the relevant clinical specialists are able to assist quickly and easily should they need to.
