Dialysis Directory

Dialysis is a mechanical process that performs the work that healthy kidneys would do: It clears wastes and extra fluid from the body and restores the proper balance of chemicals (electrolytes) in the blood. Dialysis is needed when chronic kidney disease becomes so severe that the kidneys are no longer working properly.
