The Renal Access Clinic is a full-service Dialysis Access Management center that specializes in preparing a temporary dialysis access and maintaining a permanent dialysis access for patients who suffer from End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) or Kidney Failure.

Patients with ESRD or kidney failure are unable to filter waste from their blood naturally. Therefore, they must have their blood filtered mechanically in a process called Hemodialysis. 

In order to begin Hemodialysis treatment, a surgeon must prepare a vascular access site. This is the site where the blood is removed and returned during a dialysis treatment session. An Interventional Nephrologist will then treat any dialysis access symptoms or complications that may arise during dialysis in which are preventing the patient from receiving their treatment.

Complications that we address are:

  • Clotted AV Fistulas & Grafts
