Home Dialysis

Home dialysis is a convenient, comfortable treatment option for those with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). It is a safe and effective alternative to outpatient dialysis treatments.

Your kidneys naturally remove waste and other materials from your body. When they are no longer able to function, dialysis is used to do the work for you. The most common setting for this treatment is a dialysis center, which requires you to attend several times a week on a specific schedule. Home dialysis increases your independence and lets you take control of your treatment on your schedule.

Home dialysis gives you the freedom to continue your current responsibilities with work and family while also receiving treatment.

Home dialysis is an excellent choice for patients who:

  • Desire more freedom and control of their lives
  • Want to continue to work or go to school while receiving treatment
  • Wish to maintain an active lifestyle
  • Want to spend more time with family

At Indiana University Health, we provide the best care available for patients eligible for home dialysis. Our physician-led program is one of the largest and most experienced in the U.S., and includes highly skilled nurses, technicians and social workers, along with an expert dietician.

Home dialysis is simple to learn, and Medicare and most private insurers cover costs. The most important factor when you are considering home dialysis is your motivation to learn to perform the treatment and stick with your routine. We provide the tools, training and on-call support you need to take greater control of your care.
