Treating Kidney Disease In The Way That Works For You

You have several options when it comes to treating kidney failure, including the type, frequency, and duration of your treatments.
Working with your doctor or healthcare team, you can determine the specific therapy and schedule that works best for you. Your options will be based on your health, your preferred lifestyle, your commitment to care and your care support system. It’s important to know your dialysis treatment options and make an informed decision.
  • Kidney Transplantation

    The best option available for most patients on dialysis.

    Kidney transplantation involves placing a healthy kidney into the body, which comes from either a living or deceased donor. However, the waiting list for kidney transplants is increasing and the median wait time is 3.6 years.1
  • Home Hemodialysis

    Treatment in the comfort of your home during the day or overnight.

    Home hemodialysis follows the same treatment procedure as in-center hemodialysis through the removal, cleaning, and returning of your blood back to your body.
  • Peritoneal Dialysis

    Treatment you can do almost anywhere.

    With peritoneal dialysis you can perform treatments in the comfort of your own home, this therapy uses the lining of your own belly—the peritoneal membrane that covers your abdomen—to filter your blood of toxins and extra fluids.
  • In-center Hemodialysis

    The traditional approach.

    The most common form of dialysis, is known as in-center or intermittent hemodialysis, this therapy option is performed three times a week, for approximately four hours per session, at either a dialysis center or hospital.
