Since the 1970s our program has trained many patients to successfully perform hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis in their homes, giving patients with renal failure more independence and flexibility.

  • Daily home hemodialysis
    • 4-6 times per week for 2-3 hours per session
  • Nocturnal dialysis
    • 5 times per week, 6-8 hours per night
