MV SANTE Dialyse
Nephrology, as the branch of medicine dealing with kidney diseases, is one of the specialties of the MV SANTE Group.
Our centre offers a comprehensive medical care, whatever the cause or the stage of the renal disease.
Dialysis is a treatment that replaces the impaired renal function. It is not a one-time treatment, but must be repeated and therefore takes time. This is why we wanted to make available the best possible treatment in the most comfortable conditions to everyone in need of dialysis, regardless of the type of insurance the patient has.
A competent team, fully aware of the constraints of a chronic treatment, will welcome you cheerfully, with a smile. A personal locker is available to each patient to store their personal items so that they can feel a bit more at home. Each dialysis room is equipped with a TV set with access to cable networks, and with free wireless Internet. During the treatment, snacks are served in the mornings and in the afternoons. Patients may also enjoy a relaxing massage.
The dialysis center receives patients from 7:30 to 19:00 Monday through Saturday and in the evenings on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to ensure the most flexible scheduling. A self-dialysis unit is also available for the most independent patients.
Our dialysis center will be pleased to welcome you during your travel in our region to ensure that you do not miss your dialysis treatment during your stay.

Nephrology from A to Z
The kidneys play an essential role in the regulation of various mechanisms in our body. In particular, they maintain the balance of water and minerals in the body and remove the waste products of metabolism. The kidneys also have a hormonal role in regulating blood pressure, red blood cell production and bone remodelling.
There are many diseases that affect the kidneys: some are rare (immunological diseases) and some are quite common (hypertension, diabetes). Most of these diseases are painless and may be detected only by more in-depth analysis. It is important to have your kidneys examined by a nephrologist to diagnose the disease when it is suspected, and in case it is confirmed, to receive specific treatments to halt the progression of the renal disease.
If necessary, the nephrological examination also helps to prescribe the renal function replacement therapy, such as dialysis or transplant. In this case, a nephrologist continues to provide specialized care for individuals undergoing dialysis or transplant.
