What does dialysis do?

Dialysis substitutes for damaged kidneys by filtering waste product from the blood and regulating the amount of fluid in the body.

Two types of dialysis

-Hemodialysis (HD). It is a procedure in which your blood flows from your body to a machine called hemodialyzer. Patients may need 3-4 times a week for this type of dialysis.
