Hemodialysis is a treatment to filter wastes and water from your blood, as your kidneys did when they were healthy. Hemodialysis helps control blood pressure and balance important minerals, such as potassium, sodium, and calcium, in your blood. In our hospitals we perform Classic Haemodialysis and HDF Hemodiafiltration (HDF).
