Dialysis Services

Our kidney dialysis service provides renal replacement therapy (RRT) to patients living in Quetta. We also have an dialysis centre at the Binuq Hospital for in-patients suffering from kidney failure who may have specialist requirements.…

Dialysis is a life-saving procedure for patients whose kidneys are not working properly, in which excess water and waste products are removed from the body. In hemodialysis, blood is drawn out through a tube in the patient’s arm into a special machine which filters the blood and pumps it back into the body. This procedure can last several hours, during which a patient’s entire blood courses through the machine numerous times. In peritoneal dialysis, the space inside the abdomen called the ‘peritoneal cavity’ is used for dialysis.
