UCSD's internationally known Dialysis Program offers a broad range of treatment modalities for patients with acute renal failure, including intermittent hemodialysis, continuous hemofiltration, hemodialysis and hemodiafiltration. Our state-of-the-art facility offers outpatient hemodialysis and peritoneal home training for adult and pediatric patients.
UC San Diego Health System specialists use the latest technology and treatment advances based on ongoing research. Within our outpatient setting, every dialysis station has reclining chairs and an individual television. The program provides a full time medical social worker and renal dietition and patients are encouraged to use take advantage of these services.
Dialysis is a treatment for kidney failure that helps filter waste products from the blood when the kidneys are not working properly. The two main types of dialysis are hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.
For your convenience, we offer Dialysis Patient Handbooks in both English and Spanish. These guides provide extensive information on what to expect, how to prepare, how procedures are done, how the members of our team work together, and much more.
The Dialysis Center operates Monday through Saturday from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Most outpatients dialyze three times a week. We make every effort to accommodate work or school schedules.
For a dialysis-related problem during our hours of operation, please call 619-543-5646. After hours please call 619-543-6737 and the answering service will contact the physician on call.
