Your dialysis options

Peritoneal dialysis, a home dialysis option, uses the lining of your abdomen (your belly) as a natural filter. A catheter in your belly allows a fluid to flow in and out of your abdomen, usually while you’re asleep, to remove waste and extra fluid. Travel without worry, have supplies delivered to your door and create a treatment schedule that fits your life.

Home hemodialysis uses a machine to filter your blood. You'll need minor surgery to create a connection point in your arm and the machine connects to it to clean your blood, usually four or five days a week. This option offers the convenience of treatment in the comfort of your home, but it’s important to have a reliable support person to help.

Our in-center hemodialysis provides peace of mind, as your dedicated healthcare team oversees every aspect of your treatment at a dialysis center. You’ll undergo treatment with other patients, offering opportunities to interact and build a supportive community. Our hospital in La Crosse serves inpatients on dialysis, while our regional dialysis centers welcome outpatient visits.

I have the freedom to schedule my treatments around what my activities are and what my kids' activities are. I can do treatment and still have strength to go out and mow the lawn or go to a sporting event or the grocery store. I’m able to do everything that I was doing before I went into dialysis.
