Dialysis is the process of filtering the body’s blood in a patient whose kidneys are no longer able to do so. This stage of disease is known as End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) and occurs when 85 to 90 percent of kidney function is lost.

Dialysis keeps your body in balance in the same manner a healthy kidney would: it removes
waste, salt, and water to prevent buildup. Dialysis ensures a safe level of certain chemicals such as potassium, sodium, and bicarbonate are in your blood; it also helps to regulate blood pressure.

There are two types of dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal. Our nephrologists will provide the diagnosis, prescription, and management of the treatment right for you. For more information on dialysis, please see our FAQ page.
