Peace of Mind with Safe Dialysis (hemodialysis) in Kyoto

At Takeda Hospital Hemodialysis Center, in addition to the standard Hemodialysis, we also actively provide hemodiafiltration (on-line HDF, and off-line HDF), as well as Intermittent Infusion Hemodiafiltration (I-HDF).
A great amount of dialysis fluid is required for the dialysis treatment, with part of the dialysate (dialysis fluid) coming into contact with the direct hemoperfusion as replacement fluid, therefore we have always made it a priority to make purification a priority.
We are thorough about water purification for the dialysate, regularly performing tests on the dialysate, as well as maintaining strict standards of water quality for the dialysate which are advocated by academic institutes.
Safe and secure blood purification therapy is provided under the direction of president Toshiya Takeda, former physician and clinical engineer and director of the hemodialysis center at Takeda Hospital. Nurses, pharmacists, registered dietitians, and social workers all work as together as one team to provide reliable dialysis treatment.
