What is In-Center Dialysis?
Hemodialysis is a procedure used to mimic the kidney’s normal function, and is required when a patient loses kidney function. Patients treated by in-center hemodialysis receive treatments in a facility like ours at a designated time, usually 3 times weekly.
All New State-Of-The-Art Dialysis Center
Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will strive to make your sessions as relaxing and comfortable as we can. The all new, bright and modern facility has 16 chairs where a team of nurses and technicians will perform your dialysis treatment. Our physicians, social workers, dietitians, and administrative staff will be available to answer any questions during your treatments.
What Does In-Center Dialysis Involve?
Hemodialysis is usually performed 3 times a week and lasts for approximately 4 hours. A special type of access called an arteriovenous (AV) fistula or arteriovenous (AV) graft, is placed surgically in your arm – preferably before you start dialysis treatments. This involves joining an artery and a vein together. Once the access has been established, our staff will connect you to a hemodialysis machine to filter the blood and remove waste substances and fluid, then return the blood to your bloodstream.
Holistic Approach To Your Dialysis
We understand that you are more than a dialysis patient and that receiving hemodialysis treatments can have a significant impact on your life. As such, a specially trained interdisciplinary staff will help you with your dialysis. Outside of performing the dialysis treatment itself, a renal dietitian will assist you with managing your diet and a social worker will help you with any psychological or social issues you need to work through. We hope you feel fully supported by our team to do well while on dialysis.
