Consultant Nephrologist & Transplant Physician
Dr Kiran Kumar Mukku is a Consultant Nephrologist and Transplant Physician in the Department of Nephrology at Virinchi Hospitals. He has overall 4 years’ experience in his field. He has been actively involved in several renal transplants; performed many kidney (renal) biopsies, percutaneous CAPD catheter insertions and renal transplant graft biopsies. He has done quite a large number of DLC Catheter insertions and performed several perma a catheter (tunnelled catheter) insertions and untunneled catheters insertions. His areas of interest include Glomerulopathies and Renal Transplant Medicine.
Dr Kiran sees a bright future prospect in the field of nephrology with the advent of wearable artificial kidneys, kidney transplantation with minimal or no immunosuppression and minimal side effects. Stem cells in kidney regeneration and transplantation, ABO incompatible kidney transplantation in large scale, paired kidney donation would change the way in which transplantation is done. According to Dr Kiran, the Department of Nephrology at Virinchi Hospitals is well equipped with state-of-the-art dialysis unit and supported by modular operation theatres and smart intensive care units for effective management of postop and critically ill patients.
