Dialysis substitutes the natural work of the kidneys, so it is also known as Renal Replacement Therapy (RRT).

Kidney maintain a healthy balance of water, salts, and minerals and also remove metabolic waste in your blood.

HemoDialysis

In hemodialysis, an artificial kidney (hemodialyzer) is used to remove waste and extra chemicals and fluid from your blood. To get your blood into the artificial kidney, the doctor needs to make an access (entrance) into your blood vessels. This is done by a minor intervention in your arm or leg.

Peritoneal Dialysis

Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) is an alternative treatment to haemodialysis. A special sterile fluid is introduced into the abdomen through a permanent tube that is placed in the peritoneal cavity. The fluid circulates through the abdomen to draw impurities from the surrounding blood vessels in the peritoneum, which are then drained from the body.
