Get to know how to make dialysis more convenient with the option of Peritoneal Dialysis
Not many of us know that there is an effective way of carrying out the process of dialysis in the comfort of one’s home, without having to make regular visits to the dialysis center, or without having to experience the pain of needles being inserted in your body for each session. Peritoneal Dialysis is a painless procedure; yet, only a small percentage of patients requiring dialysis opt for this procedure, primarily because of the lack of adequate information about it. How effective is peritoneal dialysis? What are its benefits when compared to hemodialysis? What are the risks involved? Can any patient who requires dialysis opt for peritoneal dialysis? Dr. Urmila Anandh, who has years of experience and expertise in this field will educate us about peritoneal dialysis, its effectiveness and scope as a mode of treatment for kidney failure.
