œCentral Clinical Ward 3F

Our artificial kidney unit was the earliest founded amongst national university hospitals in Japan. And amongst these hospitals we currently own the largest blood purifying facility. We provide safe and effective renal replacement therapy for patients with renal failure, as well as various blood purifying therapies (hemodialysis, plasma exchange, hemoabsorption). We also deal with blood access (vascular access) for hemodialysis. We regularly conduct seminars for patients with renal failure. The artificial kidney outpatient service is available for patients requiring hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and those who have had kidney transplants.
