The Sinai Hospital Dialysis Access Center focuses on one thing: the needs of the dialysis patient. The center provides competent, innovative, urgent and emergent access treatment for dialysis patients throughout the Baltimore community.
Because our center is dedicated to only end-stage renal disease patients, we understand the challenges with appointments and procedure room availability when patients have complications with an access. The center works on a same-day, next-day service model, so all issues are responded to in an expedient manner.
With one call to our center, a vascular intervention can be scheduled for that day or, if an elective procedure, usually within 24 hours.
The Sinai Hospital Dialysis Access Center is a multicenter practice that specializes in all aspects of managing access for dialysis patients. Our integrated approach enhances your access pathway, prevents unnecessary hospitalizations and avoids missed dialysis appointments.
These are some of the procedures performed:
Your Dialysis Access Team
The Sinai Hospital Dialysis Access Center's ability to provide prompt, state-of-the-art care is a direct result of the dedication of our dialysis access team.

The dialysis access team is your primary source of information and is always available to answer your questions and address your concerns.
