Patients receiving dialysisDialysis is the medical treatment for people who have lost kidney function. Dialysis performs the regular functions of healthy kidneys by cleaning blood and removing wastes and excess water from the body. When loss of kidney function is permanent, you must receive dialysis on a regular basis or receive a kidney transplant.

Dialysis patients and the families have important roles in their and their loved ones, care. From fitness and nutrition to administering their own dialysis, a patient has the ability to be actively involved in treating and preventing progression of their chronic kidney disease. Southern Health-Santé Sud encourages patients and their families to learn as much as they can about chronic kidney disease.

Dialysis treatment in Southern Health-Santé Sud is provided in conjunction with the Manitoba Renal Program at the Boundary Trails Health Centre or the Portage District General Hospital where a dedicated team will provide you with the best possible care.
