Tanaka Urology Clinic provides temporary dialysis (travel dialysis and business trip dialysis) to suit the lifestyle of patients.

This allows patients to receive dialysis treatment at their business trip or destination when they need to be away from their regular dialysis clinic due to a travel or business trip.

Advantages of Temporary Dialysis
(Travel Dialysis/Business trip Dialysis)

01: You can choose the location

Patients can receive dialysis treatment at a location of their choice, without being tied to their regular dialysis clinic. Our clinic has four locations in Osaka (Suita City, Hirakata City) and Nara (Ikoma City, Nara City), so it is convenient if you need dialysis while traveling or on a business trip.

02: Professional support

A team of experienced doctors and staff will install and monitor the equipment necessary for temporary dialysis. You can receive treatment with peace of mind.

03: Clinic collaboration and clinical care

In collaboration with the clinic where patients receive artificial dialysis, we provide the same clinical care as regular dialysis, even though it is temporary dialysis. You can receive safe and effective treatment under the guidance of specialized dialysis treatment staff.
