The Razia Begum Dialysis Centre opened in 2016. Our main goal is to give free, high quality dialysis treatment to those suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD). We also strive to educate dialysis patients and their families so that they can live healthier lives.
We are currently the largest fully-equipped dialysis centre in Punjab, and treat 7,500 patients each month. We have invested in state-of-the-art dialysis machines, and employ leading doctors in the field of kidney disease treatment.
Dialysis is needed when kidneys stop working properly. This advanced kidney treatment removes waste products and excess fluids from the body, by diverting blood to a machine to be cleaned. If someone suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD) does not receive dialysis, then waste products and fluid can build up to dangerous levels, leading to unpleasant symptoms and a severe risk to life.
In Pakistan, an estimated 25 million people suffer from chronic kidney disease and are in need of dialysis treatment. This major health crisis continues to worsen due to unsafe drinking water, unhealthy diet, environmental pollution, and the prevalence of high blood pressure and diabetes. Many patients struggle to find quality treatment due to high costs and poorly equipped public hospitals. This results in long waiting lists for dialysis treatment, which can prove deadly. An estimated 20,000 people die from CKD each year. We aim to fill this gap through our free dialysis centre in Lahore.
You can apply for hemodialysis treatment by completing the Online Dialysis Treatment Form. We will then proceed the following steps:
- Our nephrologist or medical officer will assess your health. You will then receive a diagnosis and a prescription for the appropriate treatment.
- We will assess your finances in order to determine your eligibility.
- If accepted, you will receive dialysis treatment. This is done in four-hour sessions, approximately two to three times a week.
- You and your family will be educated on health management and prevention techniques.
We also work with local hospitals to identify patients requiring treatment, in order to reduce their waiting lists.
