Hyderabad, February 8th, 2023: The Asian Institute of Nephrology & Urology (AINU) has today announced its Dilsukhnagar unit would now have a 50% increased capacity to cater to the growing demand for dialysis. From the current 800 sessions per month, the AINU unit will now be able to provide 1200 dialysis sessions each month.

Srinivas, Facility Director and senior urologist, AINU said, "India in general, and Hyderabad in particular, has growing instances of kidney ailments, and there is an ever increasing demand from those who ok seek dialysis. Providing the best available dialysis to patients is the need of the hour, to possibly ensure infection-free care. AINU has always been at the forefront of acquiring advanced technologies, and this new unit will offer the latest HDF care."
