We provide Hemodialysis, Peritoneal Dialysis, and Continuing Education to those currently receiving Dialysis or those who may have kidney issues that have arisen.
Our treatments are given in comfortable dialysis suites or at the bedside, depending of the stability of the patient.
Our experienced Nurses and Techs are trained to provide personalized care to each patient we have the privilege of servicing.
Hemodialysis is a treatment that uses a machine to filter the patient's blood outside of their body. During hemodialysis, the patient's blood is passed through a special filter, called a dialyzer, which removes waste products and extra fluid from the blood. The clean blood is then returned to the patient's body. Hemodialysis treatments typically last around four hours and are typically done three times per week in a clinic.
Peritoneal Dialysis is another type of dialysis treatment that uses the patient's own peritoneal membrane, which lines the inside of the abdomen, as a filter. During peritoneal dialysis, a special fluid called dialysate is introduced into the patient's abdomen through a small tube. The dialysate draws waste products and extra fluid from the patient's blood into the abdomen, where it is then drained out of the body. Peritoneal dialysis can be done at home, and the patient typically does several exchanges of dialysate throughout the day.
