  • Comprehensive treatment unit for spinal cord injury from Dr. Neville Fernando Teaching Hospital

  • Dr. Neville Fernando Teaching Hospital Malabe (NFTH) has opened a new unit which offers comprehensive treatment to patients suffering from spinal cord injury. The hospital in addition to providing treatment to spinal injury patients also offers a wide-ranging service to rehabilitate and manoeuvre patients back to society. NFTH is thus the only private hospital in Sri Lanka that offers a comprehensive rehabilitation solution for patients who suffer from injured spinal cord incurred due to accidents.
    NFTH and SAITM Chairman Dr. Neville Fernando commenting on the new treatment unit said, Asian Spinal Cord Network and SAARC Surgical Care Society accredited Sri Lanka Spinal Cord Network President, Senior Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Narendra Pinto will be in charge of the unit.
    “Surgery itself is not sufficient for the complete cure of patients with damaged spinal cords. To socialise these patients as normal healthy citizens, a systematic rehabilitation process that goes beyond medication is required. It is to fulfil this timely requirement that NFTH initiated this service,” explained Chairman Dr. Neville Fernando.
    NFTH consists of a team of well-trained specialist surgeons, experienced specialist rehabilitation doctors, nursing staff, physiotherapist, occupational therapists and attendants to provide an exceptional service, Dr. Fernando said.

Special concessionary packages are also available for members of the Sri Lanka Armed Forces who suffer from these ailments from NFTH. Hotlines 0112407600 and 0117707600 are opened for inquiry and clarifications of the public. More details can also be obtained from the official website of NFTH

  • Amidst rising cost in healthcare and essentials due to recent tax policies that came into effect, Dr. Neville Fernando Teaching Hospital (NFTH) as a part of its corporate social responsibility initiative has decided not to charge value added tax (VAT) from patients’ dialysis bills. NFTH Chairman and founder Dr. Neville Fernando said that his hospital decided to offer the benefit of ‘no VAT’ for patients’ dialysis bills and instead the VAT amount will be borne by the hospital.

    Dialysis is the artificial process of eliminating waste (diffusion) and unwanted water (ultrafiltration) from the blood. Human kidneys do this naturally. Dialysis may be used for patients who have become ill and have acute kidney failure which means the temporary loss of kidney function, or for fairly stable patients who have permanently lost kidney function. Many patients with chronic kidney diseases or diabetes have to undergo the dialysis process for several times upon medical treatment recommendations. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) has become a major health problem in rural Sri Lanka. Previously confined to North Central and Uva Provinces, it is now prevalent in the Northwestern, Eastern, Southern and Central Provinces, and parts of the Northern provinces.
