Since 2005, the technology for cardioprotective online haemodiafiltration was available, but at the time of writing, the majority of hospitals still haven't converted to this approach, not least of all due to financial reasons - they already have legacy conventional dialysis machines installed.
In general hospitals, dialysis was an afterthought, yet another procedure to perform on patients. Something that happened to sick people.
You are not treated like just another patient to treat and release. From the pre-visit concierge assisting you with booking your stay and the warm welcome of our company transport to the scenic views, friendly staff, and relaxing roomy interior, your stay will be something you might just want to remember.

OL-HDF(Online hemodiafiltration) is widely recognised as a safer, more comfortable and more efficient alternative to conventional hemodialysis. Numerous publications attest to the beneficial effects of OL-HDF in terms of removal of a broad spectrum of uremic toxins, anemia control, phosphate reduction, increased hemodynamic stability and blood pressure control and decreased dialysis-related amyloidosis to mention just a few. The numbers speak for themselves.
The estimated number needed to treat (NNT) showed that to prevent one annual death eight patients would need to be switched from haemodialysis to online haemodiafiltration.
12 experienced doctors and nurses spearheaded by Evaggelia Fraggedaki, prizewinning research nephrologist and MD, in close co-operation with an administrative department of 10. The clinic maintains very high standards when it comes to the academic status of its personnel, who are carefully selected and armed to the teeth with up to date procedures.
Every person affected by CKD should get the chance to benefit from HighVolumeHDF and the Nephroxenia experience.
