Methods of dialysis we offer
When the kidneys are not functioning properly, dialysis carries out the task of filtering toxins and harmful waste products from the blood instead.
What happens during dialysis treatment?
Dialysis is a medical treatment that helps people with kidney failure filter harmful waste products and excess fluids from their blood. This life-sustaining procedure can improve their quality of life and extend their lifespan too.
The dialysis process involves accessing the bloodstream, filtering waste and excess fluids and returning blood to the body.
There are two primary types of dialysis treatment — haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.
Both haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis have their unique advantages and disadvantages, and your nephrologist can help you determine which method is best for you.
While dialysis can be uncomfortable, most people find that the benefits greatly outweigh the drawbacks. Its side effects are generally mild and can be managed with medication or other interventions. Additionally, our dialysis centre offers flexible scheduling to accommodate patients’ busy lives.
