Kidneys have important roles in maintaining health.
When healthy, kidneys maintain the body’s internal equilibrium of water and minerals.
Dialysis is used primarily as an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with kidney failure.
Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturbance in kidney function or progressive but chronically worsening kidney function.
Dialysis is regarded as a “holding measure” until a kidney transplant can be performed or sometimes as the only supportive measure in those for whom a transplant would be inappropriate.
If a patient has intractable kidney failure symptoms or signs, start of dialysis may be recommended.
Yanet Specialized Internal Medicine Specialized Clinic is the only health care center that provides dialysis service in SNNPRs (South Ethiopia).
So far we conduct about 1300 hemodialysis sessions every year.
The Dialysis Department provides comprehensive health care for patients with different types of renal (kidney) diseases, with compassionate and caring staff.
