UI Hospitals & Clinics has one of the longest running home dialysis training programs in the country. 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
