Dialysis

Submit your agency to be included on Coastal Bend Health Finder

Coastal Bend Health Finder Dialysis listings

Dialysis Clinics are used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturbance in kidney function, known as renal failure or for those with progressive but chronically worsening kidney function–a state known as chronic kidney disease. Dialysis is regarded as a "holding measure" until a renal transplant can be performed, or sometimes as the only supportive measure in those for whom a transplant would be inappropriate.

hemodialysis treatments  - typically provided in a dialysis center three times per week with a typical 3 to 5 hour treatment.

nocturnal daily hemodialysis - frequent long treatments, often done at home while sleeping, usually 5 to 7 times a week, for 6 to 8 hours.
