Dialysis Access
Dialysis Access Service
The JSMC's dialysis access service is a multi-center practice that specializes in ALL aspects of managing access for dialysis patients. We focus on the needs of dialysis patients and provide up to date, competent, innovative, urgent and emergent access treatments for dialysis patients throughout Western Kentucky and Northern Middle Tennessee.

We understand how difficult it can be to make an appointment when patients have complications with their access. Therefore, we work on a same day, next day service model so all issues are responded to in an expedient manner.

Services provided include:
  • Ultrasound for new AV access planning or evaluating established AV access
  • New dialysis access placement (AVF or AVG) including basilic vein transposition and Hybrid AV access placements for difficult venous anatomy such as HeRO grafts and suturless venous anastamosis.
  • Laparoscopic peritoneal dialysis catheter placement, revision or removal.
  • AV access revision or declot
  • Hemodialysis catheter placement or exchange
  • Angiogram (fistulogram)
  • Balloon angioplasty or stent placement for AV access narrowing.
  • Management of aneurysms within AV access
  • Removal of infected AV grafts
Your Dialysis Access Team
The JSMC's dialysis access service's ability to provide prompt, state-of-the-art care is a direct result of the dedication of our dialysis access team. We work very closely with the nephrologists, the dialysis centers and other medical providers in the community to coordinate care prior to and following dialysis access surgery and other interventions.

It all begins with one call to our dialysis access coordinator and surgical assistant Cricket Hayes at (270)885-8505. Our Dialysis Access Surgeon and Medical Director, Dr. David Kabithe can also be contacted directly at any time with any concerns regarding dialysis access patients.
