Conditions

If you have been prescribed dialysis, treatment can help slow the progress. Dialysis will help move the build-up of fluid and waste in your kidneys and along with treatment, it can help slow disease progression.

We are your partner for:

  • Outpatient dialysis in a clinic
  • Dialysis in your home¬†
  • Treatment options for patients who choose not to be treated for kidney disease by dialysis or transplantation
  • Education and training

Treatments

Dialysis at home

You may be able to have dialysis at home. Those who choose this option often enjoy the freedom it gives them to continue their everyday activities and can sometimes do their dialysis at night while sleeping. In addition to offering flexibility, home dialysis is gentler on your body because it is done more frequently.

Outpatient at a clinic

Outpatient clinics provide treatment in an intimate setting where you can relax, connect with other patients and chat with family and friends. Your dialysis will be administered and supervised by medical professionals at higher doses than at home. Most dialysis sessions last many hours but usually are not every day.
