Welcome to Kidney and Bladder​ (Nephrology, Urology and Kidney Transplant​)

The Aga Khan University Hospital offers comprehensive nephrology, urology and renal transplant services that meet international standards. We continuously work to enhance our services by pursuing excellence in education, clinical research and medical technology. Our highly-qualified team consists of Nephrologists (kidney specialists), Urologists (specialists in bladder, prostate and male reproductive organs) and internationally trained renal surgeons. 

The Kidney and Bladder Service Line uses an evidence-based approach and state of the art equipment for accurate diagnoses and quality treatment. We provide treatment options for a wide range of medical issues, including but not limited to: kidney stones, acute kidney injuries (AKI), kidney failure, polycystic kidney disease, bladder issues, enlarged prostate and male infertility. We also treat various types of kidney and prostate related cancers in collaboration with our Oncology Service Line. These include kidney cancer, bladder cancer, penile cancer and testicular cancer. 

We perform a number of specialised procedures including CRRT (Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy), renal biopsy, haemodialysis, lithotripsy and urodynamics. Our offering of surgical procedures includes nephrectomy, radical prostatectomy and cystectomy.

We also offer a comprehensive kidney transplant program that is managed by a skilled team of surgeons, nurses, technicians and counselors. Our team provides exceptional care through customized treatment plans and we are one of the few programs in Pakistan that accepts complex cases. 

The Aga Khan University Hospital has a wide range of specialties under one roof. Our nephrologists, urologists and surgeons work closely with doctors from other service lines in the hospital to ensure that our patients are given holistic treatment with a multidisciplinary approach. ​
