How To Prepare For Dialysis treatment: Selecting Modality, Fistula Surgery, and more

Episode 135: How To Prepare For Dialysis treatment: Selecting Modality, Fistula Surgery, and more. Dialysis is a common treatment for people whose kidneys are functioning poorly. Taking over the work of the failing kidneys, a dialysis machine filters out toxins from the blood in people who have end-stage renal or kidney disease. To undergo dialysis, a patient must first determine the modality, or type, of dialysis, then have a surgical procedure to create an access point for the machine. Interventional Nephrologist Dr. Qasim Butt discusses how to select the modality (the type of dialysis), getting your access surgery, recovering/healing after the fistula surgery, and more.
