NephroPlus is India’s largest and most widely distributed network of dialysis focused centers. Founded in 2009, NephroPlus currently has a network of dialysis centers across 18 states in India, offering dialysis services as well as facilitating nephrological procedures including kidney transplants with its partner hospitals. The network includes both stand-alone dialysis units as well as services in collaboration with stand-alone and multi-chain hospitals.
Dialysis is a necessity for chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients who have end-stage renal disease. Due to a significant undersupply of dialysis centers in India, a majority of patients cannot get access to the treatment. With the prevalence of diabetes and hypertension, leading causes of CKD, expected to rise due to lifestyle factors, the need for dialysis in India is likely to increase further. SeaLink Capital Partners worked closely with the NephroPlus team as they expanded their network across India and address a crucial healthcare need for millions of people.
