We offer an improved form of hemodialysis, which is done at night, for eight hour sessions, three times a week. This is done at the dialysis center in Milwaukee. The increased time of the dialysis session permits slower fluid removal, which greatly improves the tolerance of the treatment. In addition, the longer dialysis time leads to better removal of the waste products of kidney failure. Reports by patients on this treatment are favorable, and results of monthly blood testing are very good.
