I think so. But there are two types of dialysis, haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, these two types of dialysis are different in the way that procedure takes place. I believe Haemodialysis involves a needle into your arm where a tube carries your blood into a machine which filters it from the toxins such as urea. Peritoneal dialysis is where a button is inserted into the belly button and fluid is pumped into the peritoneal cavity where excess fluid drains from the blood and into the dialysis fluid. The used fluid is removed and replaced with fresh fluid.

Yeah I think so.. Because 'Renal' usually refers to kidney
(I'm assuming from A level biology)

Renal dialysis and kidney dialysis are the same. Just different names used by different people. However the more appropriate term is kidney dialysis.

But there are 2 types of dialysis, haemo and peritoneal.

Ahmed766 pretty much explained that, so I hope these helps.
