Hemodialysis Access

Many patients may require hemodialysis to remove fluid and toxins from the body which accumulate when the kidneys are not functioning normally. In order for this to be performed we must be able to deliver a continuous flow of blood from the patient to the dialysis machine and back to the patient during a dialysis treatment. In general, patients undergo hemodialysis three times per week. The most efficient and safest way of providing blood flow is by creating an access in the arm through a surgical procedure. The two major types of these are the arteriovenous fistula (AV fistula) and the AV graft.

Reflux Care


Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease or GERD affects nearly 1 in 3 people throughout their lifetime. The majority of people suffering from GERD manage this disease ineffectively with medications like proton pump inhibitors. Increasingly these medications are being found to have drastic side-effects and may even stop working. Along with your gastroenterologist, primary care or ENT physician we work closely to coordinating the care of patients suffering from GERD. In some circumstances, a large hiatal hernia is associated with GERD. At Highland Park Surgical Associates we have the ability to both repair these hernias and address your reflux symptoms.
