Dialysis Access preservation is greatly affected by the early detection of it's dysfunction.  Timely resolution of any problems lead to fewer missed dialysis treatments and lower hospitalizations.


​The most common dialysis access problem is the narrowing of the access or the blood vessel attached to it. This narrowing, called "stenosis", can lead to the clotting of the access.  If this happens, dialysis treatments will not be effective and the access may stop flowing.


​The following procedures are performed at our center to achieve the best possible dialysis access health:

  • Vessel Mapping
  • Angioplasty
  • ​​Thrombectomy (Declotting)-
  • ​Accessory Vein Immobilization/Ligation
