When the kidney fails, dialysis will remove the fluid and waste products that build up in the body. At Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, kidney failure is treated in the Dialysis Unit with either hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.
The Dialysis Unit is located 31 Mall Road in Burlington, Mass. It is open Monday through Saturday, from 7 am to 11 pm. Off-hour emergencies are covered by the on-call physician and nurse. To contact the Dialysis Unit, call John Kobrenski, RN, nurse manager, at 781-744-8023.
