What is travel dialysis at Ryogoku Ekimae Internal and Dialysis Clinic?
Eating habits, diet and lifestyle will often be limited when patients start dialysis treatment. Because of this, there are many people who sacrifice their lifestyle and interests in travelling. For such people, a refreshing trip may be a valuable opportunity to enhance the treatment and give motivation for a more active lifestyle. At our clinic, we are actively accepting temporary dialysis treatments, so patients can take advantage of business trips, traveling, etc.
We sincerely hope that dialysis patients can continue to work actively and live their usual daily lives with our clinic's services to provide high-quality dialysis treatments.

Introduction of Doctor
Fellow of the Japanese Society for Dialysis Therapy Medical DoctorShogo Kimura, Ph.D. Medical Director
Greetings. I am Dr. Shogo Kimura, medical director of the Ryogoku Ekimae Internal and Dialysis Clinic.
I have been working in the field of kidney internal medicine, dialysis therapy and kidney transplantation.
Our clinic offers 4 features.
① Online blood filtration. Currently, 14 out of 18 available dialysis monitoring devices are used at our clinic. This treatment process is a relatively new treatment which is expected to be effective for dialysis difficulties and dialysis amyloidosis.
② Blood purification therapy mainly for patients with chronic renal failure, but blood purification therapy for various diseases such as LDL apheresis can also be performed as necessary.
③ The clinic is located in front of the JR Sobu Line Ryogoku Station and is convenient enough that our clinic can be seen from the station's platform. For that reason, our hospital is convenient to visit not only for people in the local area, but also for distant travelers.
In addition, we offer a pick-up service with our dedicated shuttle bus service for those who have difficulty visiting by themselves.
④ Our clinic offers accommodation services . For patients who have difficulties with outpatient dialysis treatments and feel uneasy being discharged from hospitals, the Ryogoku Ekimae Internal and Dialysis Clinic offers options to accomodate patients who require these services.
As an effort to improve the quality of dialysis medicine, we are planning to acquire dialysis technology and knowledge in case study meetings, actively exchanging with other institutions through presentations at academic conferences and continuing our research and education on the latest treatments available. As a dialysis and kidney specialist, please do not hesitate to consult with our clinic regarding your concerns.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
