Kidney surgeries at Anuradhapura Kidney Treatment Unit


The programme of providing treatment to kidney patients in the North Central Province is being further expanded.

The grafting of kidneys has commenced within the Anuradhapura Kidney Disease Research and Treatment Unit.

Hitherto kidney surgeries were normally performed within the Anuradhapura Teaching Hospital. Kidney transplant surgeries commenced at the Kidney Disease Research and Treatment Unit after it was transformed into a Unit with fully fledged medical facilities.

The Public and Private Sectors joined in supplying the required surgical instruments for this Unit. A stock of surgical instruments worth 4.7 million rupees and donated by the Battaramulla Rotary Club was recently handed over to this Unit.
