Kidney Center

The CNUH Kidney Center started in 1980 when Prof. Kang Yeong-Jun, the then head professor in the Department of Nephrologyn, provided the renal replacement therapy with only one hemodialyzer for the first time in the Jeonnam region. Then, chronic renal diseases including diabetes, hypertension, glomerular disease, and polycystic kidney have been continuously and rapidly increased due to westernization and extended longevity following rapid economic growth currently, about 200 patients visit the Kidney Center and are treated daily and about 30,000 cases of hemodialysis are performed annually. The Kidney Center has established an efficient cooperation system with related departments and equipped with 46 most excellent hemodialyzers in the world [hemodiafiltration: including 26 hemodialysis equipments with the most advanced online HDF function from FMC, Germany] to provide `specialized - good-quality medical treatment’ to patients with acute ㆍ chronic kidney diseases. Also, the center performs customized hemodialysis depending on the condition and the level of dialysis of each patient, and provides treatment and education for about 200 patients with peritoneal dialysis everyday.

The Kidney Center will try its best to continuously develop further for the health and happiness of patients with dialysis and to provide the best medical services with humble mind and family-like attitudes to patients.
