Vanderbilt’s home dialysis program is the largest in the region, and the percentage of people we care for with home dialysis is higher than the national average. Our experienced nursing and healthcare staff also provide in-center dialysis at three state-of-the art facilities.
Conditions We Treat
Dialysis is used to filter the blood when the kidneys cannot do this properly, due to many types of diseases or complications. These conditions include:
- Autoimmune and inflammatory disease
- Chronic kidney disease
- Genetic kidney disease

Why Choose Dialysis at Vanderbilt
- State-of-the-art facilities
Vanderbilt’s advanced dialysis machines in three new facilities assure you that your therapy is done with the most up-to-date equipment.
- Home dialysis
We have one of the largest home dialysis programs in the country. We support both peritoneal and hemodialysis done at home. Under the direction of physicians, our nurses help with home dialysis. They will teach you how to do your at-home dialysis, and you will be assigned a nurse to call for questions and help.
- Unique expertise
Because we treat so many people on dialysis, we are experienced at moving patients between types of dialysis — starting a patient on hemodialysis and switching to peritoneal dialysis, or vice versa. Your care team will recognize if you need this change and help you make the transition.
Tests, Treatments and Services
We offer a full range of tests, treatments and services, including:
- Continuous renal replacement therapy
- Home dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis
- Peritoneal dialysis
