The services of the Nefrocenter facilities
The services of the Nefrocenter group are provided through the National Health Service (SSN) and cover various medical areas to guarantee their patients a wide range of skills: dialysis, diabetology, diagnostic imaging, cardiology, rehabilitation and hyperbaric therapy.
The dialysis centers of the Nefrocenter group ensure all types of treatments, allowing patients a path of treatment at high quality levels thanks to the use of cutting-edge technologies with latest generation artificial kidneys. All treatments are performed in total tranquility thanks to the safety systems that the equipment is equipped with and for the many years of experience of the medical and nursing staff of our centers.
This replacement therapy involves purifying the blood to better compensate for kidney function. The process takes place through an artificial kidney connected to the patient by an extracorporeal blood circulation system. It is a treatment based on the physical principle of diffusion, which allows the exchange of substances between two compartments, blood and dialysate, divided by a semipermeable membrane assembled inside the filter, so that the toxic substances pass from the blood flow to the dialysate to then be eliminated. In contrast, most of the essential substances for the body are not released. This allows for an optimal result for the patient.
It is a method that allows to obtain a particularly advantageous result for the optimal yield of the treatment of chronic kidney disease, in subjects with cardio-vascular problems. The latter differs from the standard in the use of filters with higher permeability whose membranes involved, thanks to a particular technological structure, allow the elimination, even from the bloodstream, of substances of higher molecular weight, thus representing a further concrete benefit for the patient’s health, which benefits from a more accurate and incisive elimination of toxins.
The technological peculiarity of the hemodiafiltration methods is to use, in addition to the diffusion process, the physical process of convection to obtain more and more removals of plasmatic water in which the toxic substances are dragged through the membranes by the blood compartment of hemodialysis patients and, at at the same time, to be able to infuse equal volumes of infusion solution with the pre- or post-dilution technique. With this method the purifying effectiveness is guaranteed by the removal of solutes of both low weight and medium molecular weight. To this end, our latest-generation equipment allows sterile and non-pyrogenic liquids to be infused no longer by pre-packaged pockets but by means of a system that allows the supply (on-line) of the infusion volume required for effective purification.
Nefrocenter clinics have analysis laboratories that allow the diagnosis of the disease in the diabetic patient. In diabetology centers it is possible to prevent the evaluation of cardiological, neurological, angiological, nephrological, ophthalmological and podological complications that may arise.

Rehabilitation and hyperbaric therapy
The neuromotor rehabilitation activities are aimed at the functional recovery of patients with outcomes of neurological and orthopedic pathologies. In the Nefrocenter Group centers it is possible to perform neuromotor rehabilitation activities both outpatient and home for various therapies: physical and instrumental medicine, hydrokinesitherapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and semi-residential rehabilitation of patients with different abilities for functional recovery from neurological and orthopedic pathologies.
To treat the various pathologies of the musculoskeletal system, the therapy uses sources such as heat, light, electricity, electromagnetic waves, ultrasounds, microwaves and infrared radiation.
Hydrokinetic therapy is a rehabilitation treatment performed in water, preferably heated, for therapeutic purposes.
L’ossigenoterapia iperbarica è basata sulla somministrazione di ossigeno puro in ambiente che viene pressurizzato ad una pressione superiore a quella atmosferica.
The Nefrocenter cardiology centers are equipped with standards for the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular and cardionefrological diseases. From the diagnosis to overcoming the disease the patient will be followed throughout the therapeutic process.
