Top 10 Renal Dialysis Networks
According to the National Kidney Foundation, 33% of American adults are at risk for developing kidney disease. With risk factors linking to high blood pressure, genetics, and diabetes, the disease is highly common, especially in the US. As the number of adults suffering from kidney disease increases, so does the demand for dialysis treatments.
CNN reports an experimental device, representing an artificial kidney, which could potentially free renal disease patients from the process of dialysis treatments. This would not only be a more convenient option for patients who receive multiple treatments a week, but it would also relieve patients from “post dialysis wash out” and other unpleasant side effects.
But until a device like this becomes available, dialysis will remain the main source of treatment. Dialysis has been used by patients with renal disease for almost 60 years. The treatment, previously conducted primarily in hospitals, has become increasingly available at freestanding clinics. The below table shows the top 10 renal dialysis networks in the U.S. based on net patient revenue:
