Transplantation is the surgical act of removing one organ from one person (donor) and placing it into another person. (worldwebnet.princeton.edu).
In this case, a kidney would be that organ.
Dialysis is a scientific term for the movement of substances across a semi permeable membrane by a process called diffusion.
(100 Questions and Answers about Kidney Dialysis by
Laurence E. Stam).
There are two (2) types of dialysis
Peritoneal Dialysis
Hemodialysis is a type of treatment that uses an artificial kidney known as a hemodialyzer, to remove waste and extra chemicals and fluid from the blood.
