The Sinai Dialysis Access Center (SDAC) 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 (ESRD) 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.
One call does it all, with one call to the center, a vascular intervention can be scheduled for that day, or, if an elective procedure, usually within 24 hours.
The Sinai Dialysis Access Center (SDAC) 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:
