With access to leading-edge diagnostic and treatment resources, as well as a total commitment to family-centered care, our consultant paediatrician is well-equipped to diagnose and treat common, everyday illnesses, as well as serious childhood diseases and conditions like cancer, diabetes and congenital heart disease.
The Paediatrician consults between 8.00am to 12 noon and also from 5.00pm to 7.00pm Mondays to Fridays.
She is also available for emergencies outside these periods.
Our Obstetrics and Gynaecological Unit provides modern comprehensive diagnostic and treatment modalities in a caring environment for women throughout all seasons of life.
Our labour room has disposable delivery packs, oxygen supply, suction devices and other baby resuscitation equipment. There is a modern delivery bed and CTG machine swhich helps the labour room team monitor uterine contractions vis-a-vis blood supply to the festus. Rupture of the uterus from excessive contractions can easily be prevented by using CTG to monitor progress of labour. It also helps to regulate the contractions to just what is required to push out the baby without disturbing the blood flow to the baby.
The two Gynaecologists in our service are keenly interested in Minimal Access Surgery, such as laparoscopic surgery and Infertility care, such as Invitro Fertilization (IVF).
Our Urology department is devoted to clinical excellence in urology care.
The problems we see in Urology include:
There are 3 Cardiologists available in the services of Kelina Hospital. All Cardiologists are seen only under appointment except for emergencies. Cardiologists are specialized in diseases of the heart and cardiovascular system, including heart attack, hypertension (the silent killer), heart failure, atherosclerosis, and clotting disorders. All medical officers in Kelina Hospital are trained to do electrocardiography (ECG).
Endoscopic surgery entails going through a natural opening in the body with soft, tiny equipment into a major organ in order to carry out a surgical procedure inside the organ. For example, one could follow the mouth into the stomach in order to treat a bleeding problem. One could follow the urine into the kidney in order to take out a kidney stone, and so on.
Laparoscopic surgery implies making tiny openings into the body, through the skin, and through which a major surgical operation can be carried out within the abdominal cavity. Major organs like the kidney, the uterus or the spleen could be removed without leaving much scarring on the skin.
The major advantage of endoscopic or laparoscopic surgery (Minimal Access Surgery) is that there is less pain, minimal or no scarring on the skin, less blood loss and so less need for blood transfusion, and patients stay a very short time in the hospital.
The following endoscopic surgical procedures are available in Kelina Hospital:
The Dentist is available 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday. She is also available in the weekends but for emergencies only.
We have several equipment to back up the work of the Dentist, including Dental X-ray machine, Autoclave, Amalgamator and Curing Light.
The Dental Chair is automated, and can store pictures of procedures before and after treatment.
The Clinic offers the following services:
Our radiologists use multiple technologies to perform various scans that help to identify diseases, pinpoint the location of tumors and foreign bodies, thereby to guide surgical procedures or monitor the progress of treatment.
The following are available in our Radiology service
We have over 1000 variety of drugs in stock. It is very unusual to have prescription that is unavailable in the Pharmacy.
There are four (4) pharmacists and two (2) assistants in the services of Kelina Hospital.
The Pharmacy is open 24 hours, 7 days in a week, with a Pharmacist on duty round the clock.Drugs are sold to inpatients and outpatients, as well as patients from other hospitals with prescriptions.
The Pharmacy also supplies vaccines for over 10 immunizable diseases.
We have a consultant ENT Surgeon.
The ENT specialty takes care of a wide variety of diseases affecting the ear, nose and throat, ranging from infections (like otitis media, otitis externa, pharyngotonsilitis, rhinosinusitis) to tumours and growths in the ear, nose and throat.
The practice takes care of removal of impacted wax and foreign bodies from the ear, nose and throat as well as management of nasal allergies, deafness and vertigo (dizziness).
We also do a variety of minor and immediate surgeries including antrostomies for chronic sinusitis, adenotosilectomy for children with difficult and noisy breathing as a result of airway obstruction from enlarged adenoids and tonsils.
Our laboratory is furnished with standard testing equipment as well as state-of-the art high-tech systems such as auto-analyzers that can concurrently and speedily perform several tests such as Liver function test, kidney function test, serum lipid profile, complete blood count, and blood sugar levels. Most of our patients sit down and wait for their results and then complete their consultation and go home, rather than go home and come back again for review of laboratory results. This is the type of service and efficiency of operations that we intend to keep as a trademark of Kelina.
With brand new anaesthetic machines and patient monitors, electrosurgical equipment, endoscopes, multiple safety measures e.g. 2 theatre lights with one on UPS, spare anaesthetic machine, multiple suction machines, spare diathermy machines, piped oxygen supply, ventilator.
If a critically ill patient needs to be transported to the hospital from their home, office, or in-between, we have a modern sophisticated ambulance to do the job. Designed and built in the US to the highest standards, our ambulance has the capacity to continuously supply oxygen to the patient between any 2 towns in this country. We also have other life-support facilities for patients that are unconscious, and equipment to monitor vital signs and assist on-board caregivers. We also have a spinal board for moving spinal-injured patients. Minor surgical operations can be performed inside the ambulance while moving dire emergencies from accident scene to hospital. Up to 3 patients can be transported and supplied with oxygen simultaneously.
Lithotripsy is a process by which kidney stones or stones formed naturally in any part of the urinary tract can be pulverized and the particles automatically flushed out without the need for open surgical operation. Our Holmium laser is capable of zapping any type of stone in the urinary tract. While the laser remains the most effective lithotripter, not all patients may be suitable candidates for this approach. For this reason, we have also installed two other lithotripsy technologies, to ensure the most effective treatment for the most patients.
Ultrasonic lithotripsy focuses high frequency sound waves on a kidney stone to break it up into tiny pieces that are easily and safely removed. Ultrasonic lithotripsy is most useful where the stones are rather large and equipment expending minimal energy like the calcuson would cause the least damage to surrounding kidney structures. To our knowledge, Kelina is the first hospital in Nigeria to acquire this technology, and its effectiveness is nothing but splendid.
Lithotripers based on pneumatic technology are best suited for stones in the lower part of the urinary tract, especially when it is necessary to use a semi-rigid scope to visualize the stone as part of the procedure. By acquiring these three lithotripters with complementary technologies and use situations, we are in a position to tackle virtually any type, size, and location of stones in the urinary tract. It is for this reason that Kelina is gaining recognition as the "centre of gravity" for total kidney stone treatment in Nigeria.
This equipment is used to examine the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum. When a person complains of “stomach pain”, it is not easy to tell whether that indicates a simple ulcer or whether the pain is from cancer. It is equally difficult to specify the diagnosis when the patient starts passing blood in the stool or vomiting blood. This crucial equipment is used to assess the exact nature of the problem, removing mere dependence on guesswork. The equipment can also take biopsy samples to be used for detailed lab analysis by the Pathologist who could then make an accurate diagnosis of the exact problem to enable appropriate treatment. Without an accurate diagnosis, cancer can be missed, and treatment for ulcer could be futile.
This equipment is used to examine the large intestine or colon, another part of the body where cancers occur very commonly. Indeed, colon cancers can be very aggressive and deadly, yet can be fully treatable if diagnosed in time. In much of the developed world, colonoscopy is performed as part of an annual or routine physical exam in persons aged 50 years and over. Kelina has brought this technology home. As with the deodenoscope, biopsy samples can be taken with the colonoscope as well, so as to obtain additional information from detailed laboratory analysis.
"Kelina Hospital has two systems from the best companies worldwide for uretero-renoscopy. Patients can have video copies of all their endoscopic procedures here in Kelina Hospital.
If kidney stones are suitable for this technology, patients can actually have their surgery and go home the same day or the next day.
This is used for resection of Posterior Urethral Valves in children. Some male children are born with these useless valves right from their mothers’ wombs. The valves disturb urination. The entire urinary tract often gets distended with urine, and without treatment, the children end up in kidney failure.
Kelina is equipped with brand new anesthesia machines that provide fine-tuned monitoring of a patient's depth of anesthesia throughout the surgical procedure. In addition we have a spare machine on standby - just in case. Between the six anesthesiologist available, all methods of anaesthesia are practiced in Kelina Hospital, including general, spinal, epidural, intravenous, face mask, caudal block and even high spinal. Epidural anaesthesia for women in labour is available if they so request it. We are so comfortable with our level of anaesthetic practice that we have operated on 3-day old babies with birth defects (congenital anomalies) as well as patients over 90 years old.
Our labour room is one of the few in Abuja with a functional CTG machine. We have brand new delivery bed, disposable delivery packs, baby resuscitator, oxygen, resuscitation equipment. Here in the picture you can see the Kelina Hospital Labour Room with CTG machine, oxygen supply, disposable delivery packs
