Dialysis

Dialysis

Dialysis is a treatment that helps in the purification and filtering of blood using a machine. It helps in maintaining the fluid and electrolyte balance in the body when patients develop end-stage kidney failure. There are two types which include hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Hemodialysis is a process in which the machine helps in filtering and removing waste products and water from the blood. Peritoneal dialysis uses a dialysate placed in the patient’s abdominal cavity to remove waste products and fluid from the body.

The dialysis department at UMMC is a hospital-based unit with numerous hemodialysis stations. It also offers continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis to different age patients with chronic kidney failure. Our dialysis department is equipped with ultra-modern dialysis machines, and it follows all the global standards to improve patient care. It offers 24/7 treatment to critically ill patients with multiple organ damage.

The dialysis department of UMMC comprises a team of professions which include nephrologists, registered nurses, and certified hemodialysis technicians. Their main aim is to maintain and improve the patient’s overall health and quality of life. Our team offers the best available treatment options depending on the patient’s condition.
