Western Hospital has the longest running dialysis unit in Sri Lanka, and has conducted over 100,000 dialyses over 30 years under expert management. Dialysis is the most common treatment for kidney failure and is a vital life saving treatment for patients with end stage kidney disease who have lost kidney function. Dialysis helps extend the life of kidney patients by removing waste and excess fluid from the blood, and is regarded as a holding measure until a kidney transplant can be performed.
Seasoned dialysis under expert management
Our dialysis unit has several dialysis stations and care is provided by a seasoned team of professionals including nephrologists, nurses, technicians and support staff that are personally handled by the Managing Director of Western Hospital, so you are rest assured of the best service possible. We offer flexible dialysis plans to suit your schedule and budget, and also conduct preliminary investigations for kidney transplants. We provide both adult and paediatric dialysis.
Haemodialysis is the most common form of dialysis; it helps filter waste and excess fluid by circulating blood outside the body through a dialysis machine, which is an external filter that acts like an artificial kidney. This blood cleansing service is available around the clock for regular and emergency patients with end stage kidney disease at the Western Hospital Dialysis Unit, which is one of the most reliable dialysis units in Sri Lanka.
Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD)
We also arrange Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) services on request. CAPD can be done in the comfort of your own home, and does not require an external machine to filter your blood. This method uses your body’s abdominal lining to filter waste products, which is absorbed by fluids that are drained into the abdomen via a catheter.
