About Katowice:

Katowice, which has always been associated with mining and heavy industry, is today the heart of the region that aspires to be a leader in innovation and new technologies. A new symbol of Katowice has become the Culture Zone. The delightful buildings of the National Symphony Orchestra of the Polish Radio, the Silesian Museum and the International Congress Centre were built here. The Zone is complemented by Spodek, i.e. a sports and entertainment hall referring to the shape of a spacecraft.

Clinic manager

"I was a holiday dialysis patient in the Diaverum clinic in Gizycko. I would like to express my appreciation for the great organization, excellent equipment and qualifications of the staff, and most importantly - for the approach to the patient and the broadest possible care for his well-being. All employees at the dialysis clinic in Gizycko work with pleasure and an inseparable smile. "
"Thank you for your true and professional medical care, kindness, warm words, constant smile and giving me a chance to return to fulfilling life."
"I am passionate about history and genealogy, I love discovering interesting facts about my family roots. I am also CKD patient, which means I need regular dialysis. Koscierzyna has a great medical base in this respect. Thanks to the Diaverum clinic, I have the opportunity to continue my treatment away from home and to continue to explore my roots and discover new members of my big family. (...) I am already looking forward to my next visit to Poland. I love Polish cuisine and the local people, I always feel at home here."

FAQ

There is a paid car park on the hospital premises.

Upon entering the dialysis clinic, a nurse will check your blood pressure, body weight, temperature, and pulse. Then you’ll be escorted to a dialysis room, where you’ll be connected with a dialysis machine via the port. For the next three to five hours your blood will be cleansed by the dialyzer machine. During your dialysis sessions, you'll sit or lie on a recliner or bed.

The dialysis treatment process can be tiring and since you can’t move around during it, it’s a smart idea to bring your books, phone or laptop, to help pass the time.

 

Some people report that they feel a little lightheaded during dialysis treatment. However, many people find the treatment to be pain-free and even relaxing. All our dialysis clinics have televisions and most of them has free Wi-Fi for use with a mobile device (please ask the staff for details). You may read, or talk to other patients.

 

Please use headphones while you watching TV or listening to the radio, so as not to disturb other patients.

Remember to bring picture ID for your first treatment. Also, if you wear glasses or use hearing aids, remember to bring those with you. Bring your medication lists, laboratory results and medical history.

 

Wear comfortable clothes, because you’ll be spending a couple of hours in a dialysis clinic during each kidney dialysis session, it is important to dress comfortably. What you wear should be loose. Also, wear a clothing that will make it easy for your healthcare team to reach your access.

Please, also take a change of shoes with you.

An individualized treatment plan is written for each patient. Conventional hemodialysis requires visits to a clinic three times a week. Usually, each hemodialysis treatment lasts 4-5 hours.

Treatment can be changed if there are no clinical contraindications. Patients who switch from hemodialysis to peritoneal dialysis will need to have a PD catheter placed. This is usually done as an outpatient procedure.

Transportation to and from the dialysis treatment is organized as part of a comprehensive hemodialysis service. You travel with other patients.
