Treatment Options

Not every modality works for every person on dialysis. DPC believes people affected by kidney failure should be able to choose the modality that works best for them. There are a variety of factors that people on dialysis might weigh in order to choose one modality over another. These include employment status, insurance coverage, the availability of services available and personal preference. DPC strives to ensure all modalities are free of financial and regulatory barriers so people affected by kidney failure can live the active and fulfilling lives they want to live.
