  • What is Kidney Biopsy?

    A kidney biopsy is a procedure in which we take a sample of your kidney to test in a lab.

  • When it is used?

    Reasons for doing this procedure include blood or protein in your urine. The procedure helps to make a more accurate diagnosis, which will help determine the proper treatment.

  • How do I prepare for a Kidney Biopsy?

    If you have had any allergic reactions to X-ray dye you should inform your doctor beforehand. Also tell him or her about any problems you have had with substances that contain iodine. Follow the instructions your doctor may give you.

  • What happens during the procedure?

    You will be given a shot of local anaesthetic into the skin. You may also be given intravenous medicine (a sedative) to help relax you during the procedure.
    The Doctor will use a scanning technique such as ultrasound or CT scan to see the kidneys. If CT is used, X-ray dye may be given intravenously that the doctor can better see the kidney during insertion of the biopsy needle.
    The Doctor will puncture the skin and guide a needle to the kidney. Because the kidneys move when you breathe, you must hold your breath for 15 to 20 seconds as the needle is inserted into your kidney. They will use the needle to remove a small sample of your kidney. The needle may need to be inserted more than once to get enough sample. The kidney sample is sent to the lab for tests.

  • What happens after the procedure?

    You stay under observation for about 6 hours to make sure there is no continued bleeding. Avoid all heavy activity and do not strain or lift anything the rest of the day and the following day.
