TABBA Kidney Institute (previously known as Aziz Tabba Dialysis Centre) was started as a dialysis centre in 1995.


TABBA Kidney Institute (previously known as Aziz Tabba Dialysis Centre) was started as a dialysis centre in 1995. Today it enjoys  the  distinction  of  being  a  private sector-enterprise,  dependant  entirely  on the generosity of Tabba family at large, pro- viding  renal  treatment  of  all  kinds  under one  roof,  without  any  distinction  of  cast, colour,  creed  or  financial  status,  with  the help of state-of-the-art technology and modern expertise.

The nephrology service at the institute started with four station dialysis units in 1995 and since then nephrology service has grown exponentially.  At present, the service is run by full time nephrologists. It is supported by registrars and resident medical officers.  The fully established state-of- the-art Hemodialysis department has been operating since July 1995. The department is equipped with 50 dialysis stations running four shifts a day.  It has dedicated machines for hepatitis C reactive, hepatitis B reactive and for negative patients. It has more than 350 registered patients. Outpatient services provide consultation where a nephrologist is available seven days a week.  The department is backed by state-of-the-art ICU, fully equipped with latest monitoring system, along with ventilators to support both surgical and medical patients.

The in-patient Nephrology services include a 26 bed general ward in addition to private rooms.  Recently  a state-of-the-art  high-flux dialysis  unit  is  established with  six  stations;  where every  patient  is  provided  a separate  cubical  to  provide privacy. On the vision of our CEO, to convert this institute into postgraduate nephrology training programme. A comprehensive postgraduate training programme is formulated and soon will be submitted to College of Physicians and Surgeons, Pakistan for approval.  The Urology Department of the Tabba Kidney Institute had also a very modest beginning in 2012.  Initially there was only one Junior Consultant. There was only a single operating room and that too with very limited facilities for open surgery and a few endoscopic procedures.  Support  services  of  Radiology  and  Laboratory were  available  but  the  anesthesia  service  was  also limited.

However even with the limited facilities, quality care was ensured and efforts were directed to providing continuous improvement.

With the efforts of our CEO and his support in form of funds, we were able to expand.   In 2016,  the  urology department was able to move to its present location on the third floor where a complete unit with provision of up to 30 inpatient beds is made. At about the same time, our present operating suite with three operating rooms and a  recovery  area  along  with  surgeons  and  technicians rooms are opened. A C-arm image intensifier and other endoscopic equipments are also added to the department.

Now the department of urology has one full time and two part-time Urologists.  A female urologist/urogyne-cologist is also available who offers the latest surgical technique of TVT [mid-urethral sling] for female stress urinary incontinence.

Tabba  Kidney  Institute  is  now  an  ISO  certified  100  bed  renal  care  hospital.  It provides comprehensive Nephro-urological and allied medical treatment under one roof on a not for profit basis.

In the business world, profit and growth are given the highest priority. However, the ultimate assessment of any business enterprise, especially the larger ones,is its social function. This applies particularly to its utilization of profit, be it for the best possible upliftment of its workforce, espousing social and national development causes, or for rendering services to mankind as a whole by way of charity to alleviate poverty and serving the underprivileged members of society. It has become imperative that resourceful people either jointly or in apersonal capacity work as building-blocks to improve the ethical values in our society. I personally feel that the suffering of individuals has increased multifold because of erosion in human values. In order to address these inequalities, inequalities, the Aziz Tabba Foundation was established in 1987 with the aim of providing housing, medical care, education, marriage and vocational training facilities to build a strong and vibrant Pakistan. The Aziz Tabba Foundation is playing its part to complement the state infulfilling the constitutional directives of providing basic liberties and developing a more equitable society. The Aziz Tabba Foundation aspires to facilitate a just, humane, equitable and sustainable Pakistan. It is a daunting task but one we consider our national responsibility. The Foundation reiterates its unflinching commitment to serve the people, giving a ray of hope and a helping hand to those who would otherwise feel alone and abandoned. In the last but not the least, I must congratulate Muhammad Ali Tabba (CEO) of Tabba Kidney Institute for his recent achievement, in building a state of the art kidney care facility.
