Dialysis, or hemodialysis, is a way to remove waste from the body when the kidneys can no longer do this well. Dialysis also helps rid the body of extra fluid, and it helps restore the balance of electrolytes, or minerals important to many of the body’s functions. At South Nassau Communities Hospital’s dialysis centers, our experts have combined advanced medical technology with modern-day amenities. So you’ll be comfortable and relaxed during your visits with us.
