Dialysis


     Your kidneys are responsible for maintaining healthy blood which helps maintain healthy organs.  Because the cells in your body release waste into your blood if your kidneys aren’t working well, it can cause major health complications or even death.

     Dialysis solves this problem by artificially cleaning your blood with special machines and techniques that remove the waste and help extend your life.  Read below if you’d like to know more about how dialysis treatments work.

Hemodialysis


Hemodialysis is used to to clean and filter your blood through a special machine that removes waste or extra salt and water from your blood.  It works by moving your blood through a special filter called dialyzer and then sending the cleaned blood back into your body.  Treatments typically last between 3 to 5 hours where you can relax, read, sleep, talk, or even watch TV.

Peritoneal Dialysis


Peritoneal Dialysis is used to remove extra water, waste, and other chemicals from your body.  It works by using the lining in your abdomen to filter your blood by using it as an artificial kidney.  It works by sending a special solution through a tube into your abdomen and exchanging that solution periodically with new solution.  Dr Levine will determine if this treatment is right for you.
