Blood Purification Center
Specialized medical services
The medical services provided here are hemodialysis induction for patients with renal failure, and hemodialysis therapy for maintenance hemodialysis patients who admitted to our hospital for the purpose of surgery etc. We also provide peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) as a renal replacement therapy. Due to the limited number of beds, outpatient hemodialysis is not performed in principle. The center also supports special treatments, including plasma exchange and double filtration plasmapheresis therapies for liver failure, autoimmune disease, and blood type incompatible organ transplantation, leukocyte removal therapy for inflammatory bowel disease, and LDL apheresis therapy for familial hyperlipidemia and intractable nephrotic syndrome.
