This is the replacement of kidney function by artificial way with machine. There are two main types of dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Hemodialysis is usually done in dialysis clinic where patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) undergo three times a week of dialysis treatment. Usually they are scheduled either Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. Each dialysis treatment lasts for about 4 hours however some patients require longer or shorter time based on efficiency of dialysis treatment, Kt/V tests. ESRD patients also require to take multiple medications and follow strict diet plan and often fluid intake restriction. There are dieticians, social workers, nurses in addition to kidney doctors in each dialysis clinic who work as a team to look after you. Peritoneal dialysis is another kind of dialysis using your own peritoneal membrane of the abdomen. Peritoneal dialysis is a daily home dialysis. You will be closely monitored and supervised by assigned dialysis nurse, dietician and dialysis doctor. Hemodialysis can also be performed with a smaller machine at home. Our physicians, in affiliation with dialysis centers provide both in-center and home dialysis.
