DaVita Inc. provides kidney dialysis services for patients suffering from chronic kidney failure. Dialysis is a process where waste and excess fluid are removed from a patient's blood in order to prevent complications caused by build-up . The kidneys, which are two bean-shaped organs found on the left side of your rib cage, are responsible for filtering waste and extra fluid from the body's bloodstream. Patients who've undergone kidney failure need to undergo dialysis treatment several times each week. The kidneys no longer work properly, causing waste and fluids to build up in the blood stream, leading to health complications such as high blood pressure or swelling.
