When kidney disease progresses to the point that a patient needs dialysis, a fistula is required. At NVV, our surgeons and staff are in daily contact with nephrologists and dialysis centers all around Northern Nevada to assist with their patients. Our surgeons perform hundreds of fistulas each year and provide ancillary services to diagnose and treat the routine problems which dialysis patients frequently face.
If you or a family member has either has chronic kidney disease and are in need of a fistula, or if you already have a fistula, you have a choice in where and how your access is created and managed. Request that your care be managed at NVV by calling us, or by speaking with your nephrologist and/or dialysis center.
