Our vision is to prevent chronic kidney disease and control its complications. Improve renal replacement therapies and ensure its adequacy.
 Our mission is treatment of acute and chronic kidney diseases and what it requires from conservative and replacement therapy in the form of dialysis treatment or renal transplantation.

This mission also includes early kidney disease prevention plan through early detection and treatment of diseases that lead to kidney failure, such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, inflammation, autoimmune diseases, renal stones and congenital diseases.

Staff Members

 Acute and chronic kidney disease, its causes and modern methods of treatment and early detection through innovative analysis, and their effectiveness in early and accurate diagnosis and treatment of complications arising from kidney disease in the form of anemia and osteodystrophy or arterial calcification as well as heart diseases resulting from these calcification disorders.
Establishment of intensive care unit within the nephrology department, it includes diagnostic ultrasound and Doppler, which facilitate the diagnosis, treatment and urgent resuscitation of patients who experience heart attacks inside the unit.
 Introduction of hemodiafilteration technique and training doctors and nurses as it is the new hope of dialysis methods.

Laboratory Structure and Facilities

  1.  A dormitory for males with 12 beds to treat renal diseases and 12 beds for females.
  2.  An isolation room to isolate patients who are being treated with immunosuppressants.
  3.  Three dialysis units containing 30 advanced computerized hemodialysis machines.
  4.  One unit with 3 hemodialysis machines for patients with hepatitis B virus to isolate them from the rest of the patients.
  5.  Intensive care unit containing monitor, ultrasound and Doppler devices.
  6.  Meeting room for doctors to discuss clinical cases.
  7.  A room for medical examination of patients before and after dialysis.
  8.  A room to keep records for the planned computer network when activated in the Institute.
  9.  Nursing room with emergency locker containing requirements of emergency medications.
Training courses for doctors from outside the institute are held such as the Egyptian Society of Nephrology, which sent 35 young doctors for training on renal diseases in TBRI, in collaboration with the Universities of Mansoura and Zagazig.

Young doctors training on the new hemodiafilteration machine and dialysis training courses for new doctors and new graduates.

Scope of Services

  •  Examination and follow-up of patients with renal diseases in the inpatient department including diagnosis, treatment and follow up of treatment response.
  •  Consultations for other sections patients (urology – tropical – Surgery – Intensive Care).
  •  Follow-up patients of emergency department and the outpatient clinic with the necessary procedures.
  •  Performing about 1,500 hemodialysis sessions per month.
  •  Renal biopsy for patients when required for diagnosed.
  •  Insertion of internaljugular and femoral hemodialysis catheters for patients from inside and outside the Institute to be used for acute dialysis.
 Routine out and in patient services :

  1.  Daily examination of inpatients and follow-up.
  2.  Daily examination of dialysis patients and follow-up.
  3.  Daily follow up of outpatient.
  1. Survival and apoptotic factors, neutrophil apoptosis and neutrophil functions: Inter-relationship among CRF, ESRD and hemodialysis patients.
  2.  The Role of Bcl2 and Bak Genes in Chronic Kidney Diseases and Hemodialysis Patients.
  3.  Hepatorenal syndrome, the way for early and accurate diagnosis.
  4.  Atherosclerosis risk in patients with chronic kidney disease: role of cytotoxic T-lymphocyte and systemic inflammation.
