When your own kidneys can no longer take care of your body's needs, dialysis is necessary. It keeps extra waste, salt and water from building up. There are two main types of dialysis: hemodialysis, which constantly filters blood through an artificial kidney, and peritoneal, where blood vessels in your abdominal lining fill in for kidneys with the help of a special fluid. Through our affiliation with Fresnesius Medical Care, Columbia Nephrology offers both.
