WHY CHOOSE A VASCULAR SURGEON TO MAINTAIN YOUR ACCESS?
Vascular surgeons are experts in the treatment of arteries and veins. We specialize in providing reliable access, so that your nephrologist (kidney doctor) may treat you with hemodialysis. Whether you’re referred for a first-time fistula or have a complex access problem, we will find a solution to keep your dialysis flowing.
MVC surgeons have been serving the dialysis population of mid-Michigan for over forty years. They follow the “fistula first” initiative, which seeks to use natural vein fistulas as much as possible. They are also actively involved in several clinical trials in the field of hemodialysis access.
Since September 2005, MVC has consolidated the diagnostic, decision-making, and endovascular management of hemodialysis patients into the Michigan Vascular Access Center. This office is a “one-stop-shop” for AV fistula management, often saving the patient trips to multiple locations. A second office, MVCS, bringing the same capabilities to patients in Saginaw County opened in the Spring of 2013.
