What is dialysis? Information about our medical services
When dealing with end-stage renal failure, patients have three kinds of renal therapy open to them: hemodialysis and hemodiafiltration, peritoneal dialysis, and, if they meet the requirements, kidney transplantation.
The patients' preferences, medical history, lifestyle and social factors all factor into the choice of therapy.
The patient is connected to the dialysis equipment via a shunt, or a dialysis catheter, placed in one of the major veins. Of course, constant nursing care and monitoring to ensure the shunt is functioning correctly are standard services provided by the dialysis station.
Treatment of complications resulting from chronic renal insufficiency, such as anemia or disruptions in calcium-phosphate metabolism, through medication (EPO and iron supplements, Vitamin D and calcimimetics) can often be provided within the framework of dialysis treatment. Regular personal nutritional consultations are also offered.
In addition to professional treatment and continuous empathetic medical aftercare, the essential expertise of a dialysis center also includes painstaking preparation for kidney transplantation.
Dr. Malgorzata Wdowia and her team are happy to assist you personally.
