The Nephrology Services at Mediclinic Airport Road Hospital Abu Dhabi are provided by a multidisciplinary team involving consultant nephrologists, experienced dialysis nurses, dieticians, vascular surgeons and trained ancillary staff. Nephrology and dialysis stand at the forefront of maintaining kidney health and mitigating the impact of kidney-related diseases. These disciplines not only focus on disease management but also prioritise education, prevention, and a patient-centred approach to enhance the lives of individuals affected by kidney conditions.

We provide care for the following conditions;

  • Diabetic kidney disease
    This is a complication of diabetes where high blood sugar levels damage the kidneys' filtering units. Over time, this damage can lead to kidney failure.
  • Uncontrolled high blood pressure
    When blood pressure remains consistently high, it can damage the blood vessels in the kidneys. This damage can impair the kidneys' ability to function properly.
  • Chronic kidney disease
    A progressive condition where the kidneys gradually lose function over time. It can be caused by various factors like diabetes, high blood pressure, and other conditions, ultimately leading to kidney failure.
  • Acute kidney failure
    A sudden loss of kidney function caused by factors like dehydration, severe infection, or damage to the kidneys due to certain medications or toxins.
  • End-stage renal disease on dialysis
    This occurs when kidneys have lost almost all their ability to function. Dialysis is a treatment that performs some of the functions of the kidneys, such as filtering waste products and excess fluids from the blood, in individuals with end-stage renal disease.
  • Pre-transplant evaluation of donor and recipient of kidney transplantation
    This involves a thorough assessment of the health of both the person donating the kidney (donor) and the person receiving the kidney (recipient) to ensure compatibility and minimise risks associated with the transplant surgery.
  • Glomerulonephritis
    This refers to inflammation of the glomeruli, which are tiny structures in the kidneys responsible for filtering blood. It can be acute or chronic and is often caused by infections, autoimmune diseases, or other conditions.
  • Rheumatological disease affecting kidney SLE
    Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease where the body's immune system attacks its tissues. Lupus can affect various organs, including the kidneys, leading to inflammation and potential kidney damage.
  • Kidney stone disease
    Formation of hard deposits made of minerals and salts in the kidneys or urinary tract. Kidney stones can cause severe pain and discomfort as they pass through the urinary system.
  • Electrolyte imbalance
    Kidneys help maintain the balance of electrolytes (such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and others) in the body. When the kidneys are not functioning properly, it can lead to an imbalance of these essential minerals, affecting various bodily functions.

Welcome to our Haemodialysis Services

At the Haemodialysis Unit in Mediclinic Airport Road Hospital Abu Dhabi we understand the challenges and impact of kidney disease on individuals and their families. We are dedicated to providing comprehensive and compassionate care through our state-of-the-art Haemodialysis services.

Haemodialysis is a life-sustaining treatment for individuals experiencing kidney failure. It involves the use of a dialysis machine to filter waste, extra fluids, and toxins from the blood when the kidneys can no longer perform this function adequately. This process helps maintain the body's balance of fluids, electrolytes, and chemicals.


The Haemodialysis Unit provides dialysis services for ESRD patients and patients with acute kidney failure.

The following services are provided in our unit:

  • Daily rounds by a consultant nephrologist
  • Monthly multidisciplinary team review
