The Penn Dialysis Program has a long history of providing outstanding, patient-centered care to individuals with acute, chronic or end stage kidney failure. Dialysis is a treatment for kidney failure that helps filter waste products, salt and excess fluid from the blood when the kidneys lose function. Dialysis also helps restore electrolyte balance and controls blood pressure.
Our program has a reputation for providing exceptional dialysis care. Penn has the largest program for home dialysis, including peritoneal dialysis, in the Delaware Valley, and we have the largest academic home dialysis-training program in the Northeast. Our outstanding teaching hospital focuses on training physicians and nurses in leading-edge, state-of-the-art care.
Our physicians collaborate with specialists from all disciplines across Penn's vast health system, including:
