Established in the April of 2004, the PKI is the brainchild of Prof. Saeed Akhter and his fellow physicians and surgeons, all trained in USA and the UK. Driven by a sense of moral and social obligation, this group of highly competent doctors chose to return to their homeland and set up a kidney treatment facility that now provides free medical services to the poverty-stricken populace. This effort was absolute success.
PKI treated more than 160,000 patients from 2004 to 2019 with scope of services from outpatient consultations to complex surgeries like Transplant and cancer surgeries, produced about 20 Urologist and nephrologists and actively participated in relief and rescue activities at time of national disasters like earth quake 2005 and later floods. PKI published more than 100 research papers in local and international Journals, presented the research papers not only in national conferences but also in international Conferences in Australia, UK, US and Singapore.

This dream later transforms into Pakistan Kidney and Liver Institute (PKLI) a state-of- The-art institute aimed at treating kidney and liver diseases. PKL I was completed in record time of 3 years but became the victim of jealously and conspiracy where Prof. Saeed Akhter felt that his vision and mission will be compromised. He thus decided to resign from his brain child and walked away because he does not compromise on principle.
