The Pakistan Kidney Institute (PKI) is a non-profit charity organization that provides state-of-the-art treatments in Urology, Nephrology and Kidney Transplantation to the financially underprivileged patients in Pakistan.
Established in April of 2004, the PKI is the brainchild of Prof. Dr. 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.
It is a relatively unknown fact but about 30-35% of all human illnesses in the country are rooted in kidney infections. Taken the enormity of these figures, it was of paramount importance that a dedicated facility to counter these diseases and infections be established. PKI is providing treatment to millions by offering advanced reconstructive surgeries, complicated cancer procedures, kidney transplantation as well as partially subsidized dialysis services.
PKI also focuses on low-cost preventive procedures such as treatment of reflux and stone diseases, control of diabetes and high blood pressure, and prevention of stones. If these conditions are left untreated, they can lead to kidney failures that may require expensive surgical procedures.
- PKI offers state-of-the-art reconstructive surgeries, complicated cancer procedures and low cost preventive procedures, including kidney transplants and dialysis services.
- PKI lays special focus on children and women.
- More than 90% of PKI’s budget is spent directly on patients, with minimal overhead expenses.
