The heart pumps blood into the arteries (blood vessels), which carry the blood throughout the body. While moving through the arteries, blood exerts some degree of pressure or force exerted against the walls of the blood vessel. This is blood pressure, which can be high or low. High blood pressure is also called hypertension.
High blood pressure, also called hypertension, means the pressure in your arteries is above the normal range. In a majority of the cases, the apparent cause of high blood pressure is unknown.

Kidney Transplantation is considered when an individual experiences permanent kidney failure. Kidney Transplantation will help you enjoy life as that of people with healthy kidneys. With time, latest advancements have made kidney transplants safer by minimising the side effects of medicines.
It is to be understood that kidney transplantation is not a cure. Rather, it is an ongoing treatment that will require the individual to be on medication as well. Along with that, the wait time to find the right donor can run into years.
At Sunshine Hospitals, we ensure a successful transplant with a well-coordinated effort from a healthcare team that is all inclusive – comprising nephrologists, transplant surgeons, transplant coordinator, pharmacist, and dietitian. Most importantly, we include you and your family as part of the treatment.

Chronic Kidney Disease (also known as a chronic renal disease) is a progressive loss of renal function over a period of months or years. The deteriorating state of kidneys can be recognised by identifying symptoms that include general feeling unwell and experiencing a reduced appetite.
Chronic kidney disease is not a direct result of the specific diagnosis. It is known as a result of screening of people known to be at risk of kidney problems such as high blood pressure or diabetes. Also, complications such as cardiovascular disease, anaemia or pericarditis may point to CKD.
Orthognathic Surgery is also known as Cosmetic Facial Surgery (Corrective Jaw Surgery) involves moving the bones of the upper or lower jaw or both. The jaws are lengthened or shortened, moved up or down, in or out, resulting in a more harmonious bite and facial appearance.
People who can benefit from orthognathic surgery include those with an unpleasing improper bite or jaws that are positioned incorrectly. Jaw growth is a gradual process, and in some instances, the upper and lower jaws may not match at the end of growth. Injury to the jaw during growth may be a cause for the incongruent growth of the jaws. The result can cause a host of problems that can affect chewing function, speech, long-term oral health and appearance. Some bite problems can be corrected by orthodontics alone.
