Dialysis is the artificial process of getting rid of waste (diffusion) and unwanted water (ultra filtration) from the blood. This process is naturally done by our kidneys. Some people, however, may have failed or damaged kidneys which cannot carry out the function properly – they may need dialysis. In other words, dialysis is the artificial replacement for lost kidney function (renal replacement therapy)
Dialysis may be used for people who have become ill and have acute kidney failure (temporary loss of kidney function), or for fairly stable patients who have permanently lost kidney function (stage 5 chronic kidney disease.
Health Net has set up a modern haemodialysis unit ideally outfitted with the latest machines and outfitted with a qualified Nephrologist and Dialysis Nurses.
At HNCL we take a serious yet dedicated and caring approach towards our dialysis patients. Our patients whether from the public or private sector are all treated with the best of care.
HNCL understands the sensitivity of kidney disease and we are committed to provide all the support to our patients and their families.
