Kidneys do the natural process of eliminating waste and toxins from our blood vessels. However in case of damage to the kidneys or in case of acute kidney failures, the patient has an option to go for the dialysis treatment. Dialysis however does not correct all the functions of a kidney. It only replaces some of its activities like waste removal and filtering toxins. Of the different types of dialysis, an urologist will suggest opting for the hemodialysis procedure, as it is safe and effective. This is the most practiced procedure in the medical world. The dialysis procedure includes a person's blood drawn from his veins and passing through a series of filters. The filters act as a barrier for the toxins and thus purifying the blood. This purified blood is then pumped back into the person's system through the veins. This procedure lasts about 3-4 hours each week and may go up depending on the person's body condition. It can be carried out at the hospital or at home. Patients undergoing dialysis can lead a normal life with changes to their life style and food habits. They will also be under medication. Travel may be permitted for such patients provided that dialysis can be done at the visiting centers.
