Dialysis (also called renal replacement therapy) is a method of removing excess water, salts, minerals and waste products from the blood when the kidneys fail to do so. Patients whose kidneys have completely shut down can live productive lives while on dialysis, or they can use dialysis while waiting to receive a kidney transplant.
The nephrologists at St. Clair Nephrology are experts in all aspects of dialysis, including:
