Patients with chronic kidney failure usually spend four hours on dialysis three times a week. There are more flexible time models available for home dialysis. We would be happy to find the right solution together with you.
Hemodiafiltration is the standard and best method whenever ultrapure water can be used. It combines two physical principles called diffusion and convection. In haemodialysis, only diffusion is used. Both methods use a filter (artificial kidney) to cleanse the blood. In peritoneal dialysis, the peritoneum (your abdomen lining) is used as a «filter». Other apheresis methods also remove small proteins or fats, for example. Please contact our nephrologist for further information.
You can choose between peritoneal dialysis or haemodialysis for home dialysis. Experienced nurses will help you at the beginning and demonstrate how to carry out the treatments. Home dialysis requires high levels of personal responsibility - but also offers much more flexibility in treatment options. Please contact our nephrologist for further information.
In principle, yes, but currently we must comply with stricter hygiene measures due to COVID-19 and ask relatives to bring or pick up patients for dialysis, but not to be present during the treatment. Children are also not allowed into the practice at the moment for the same reasons.
