Dialysis

Our kidneys play a vital role in maintaining overall health by acting as a filter to remove waste from our blood. Healthy kidneys can cleanse about 50 gallons of blood each day, which eliminates toxins from the body in the form of urine. When kidney damage or failure occurs, the body can begin to build up waste in the blood stream that can be dangerous to our health.

Dialysis is a medical procedure that is designed to help the body rid itself of toxins and excess fluid. There are two types of dialysis treatment available today. Hemodialysis uses a machine to filter blood. Peritoneal dialysis uses a solution and the blood vessels in the lining of the abdomen to clean blood. With this form of dialysis, blood never leaves the body.

Your doctor will work with you to determine if dialysis is right for you. Click below to learn more about how Norwegian American Hospital can help you or a loved one with our full range of  dialysis services.
