Hemodialysis Access Management

Long term hemodialysis access is obtained through arteriovenous fistulas or grafts. These are usually created surgically. We can manage problems with these fistulas/grafts through minimally invasive needle punctures to improve function. Additionally, in certain patients arteriovenous fistulas can be created through a new minimally invasive technique using small needle punctures. This procedure is performed under conscious sedation with constant monitoring by a nurse and every procedure is performed by a board certified physician.

Dialysis Catheters

Tunneled dialysis catheters can be placed for dialysis access. The catheter tunnels a short distance under the skin and enters a large vein in the neck or groin. Tunneled peritoneal dialysis catheters can also be placed for home dialysis treatment. This procedure is performed under conscious sedation with constant monitoring by a nurse and every procedure is performed by a board certified physician.
