Our Specialties



The Renal Access Clinic of Houston puts our patients care above all else. We pride ourselves on delivering quality, compassionate, and prompt care for patients.  We specialize in treatment of temporary and permanent access for patients who are receiving dialysis treatment and suffer from End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), or kidney failure. 
 
Patients with kidney failure or who suffer from End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) are unable to filter waste from their blood and must have their blood filtered mechanically in a process called hemodialysis. 
 
Before a patient begins hemodialysis sessions, a surgeon must prepare a vascular access site. It is through this site, that the blood is removed, cleaned and returned continuously during a dialysis session. To maximize the amount of blood cleansed during hemodialysis treatments, the vascular access should allow continuous high volumes of blood flow.
 
In the past, access procedures required hospitalization. But, thanks to technological advances, we can now provide cutting-edge access care in an outpatient setting. Our patients enjoy greater convenience while avoiding the risks of open surgery, added expense and prolonged hospital stays. We understand that this access is your lifeline to hemodialysis, and we take great care in preserving these sites.
 
We have a proven 95% success rate on the procedures we perform. This success rate is far above the national average of 85%. Our approach to your treatment in individualized to ensure the best outcome.
