When kidneys can no longer function, or even fail, dialysis takes over the role of the kidneys to remove toxins, waste and excess fluids from your body.  Our team of renal specialists, nurses, technicians, dietitians and counselors provide expert treatment and training for people needing dialysis.

Reflecting the commitment to provide state-of-the-art services and care to our patients, we have dialysis centers conveniently located throughout the entire metro St. Louis area.  In addition, we are proud to offer one of the largest home dialysis programs in the nation.
