What is dialysis?
Hemodialysis is a treatment that removes wastes and extra fluid from your blood. It can be done at home ("home hemodialysis") or in a dialysis center.

As your blood is filtered, it is returned to your blood stream. Only a small amount of blood is out of your body at any time. In-center treatment time is 3-5 hours, 3 times a week.
