Dialysis Procedures

Dialysis is a therapeutic procedure that can aid or replace existing kidney function. In dialysis, blood is filtered to remove toxins and maintain salt and water balance. There are two main types of dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. In hemodialysis, blood is filtered through a machine, and in peritoneal dialysis, the filtering relies on the lining of the abdomen (called the peritoneal membrane).
