Dialysis Access Services
Interventional nephrology is a subspecialty of nephrology that focuses on performing procedures related to kidney diseases and dialysis access. Interventional nephrologists use ultrasound, catheters, and endovascular techniques to diagnose and treat various dialysis access issues. Our interventional nephrologists can provide tunneled dialysis and infusion catheter placements, dialysis fistula and graft angiograms and declots, as well as peritoneal dialysis catheter troubleshooting.
