Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a process in which a soft tube, called a catheter, is used to fill your abdomen with dialysis solution, a cleansing liquid. Waste products and extra fluid pass from your blood into the dialysis solution that will pull wastes and extra fluid into the abdominal cavity. These wastes and fluid then leave your body when the dialysis solution is drained.
At Catholic Health, we offer services to insert and maintain your vascular access for peritoneal dialysis. We provide:
- Catheter insertion/exchanges
- Catheter removals
- Revisions and repairs of non-functioning catheters
