Specializing in Dialysis Access Creation and Management

Nevada Kidney Disease & Hypertension Centers (NKDHC) in Henderson, Nevada, specializes in the creation and maintenance of accesses for dialysis therapies. Using the latest techniques at this state-of-the-art facility, NKDHC provides comprehensive vascular care that includes fistula creation and minimally invasive procedures for dialysis access management in an outpatient setting.

The center’s physicians and clinical staff are committed to delivering the highest level of personalized care to patients in the local communities of Las Vegas and beyond, restoring function to dialysis accesses in a timely manner, thereby allowing patients to return quickly to their scheduled treatments.

Always putting the patient first… the goal at NKDHC is to create an environment that provides an exceptional patient experience and excellent clinical outcomes.

Vascular Care Has Evolved. It’s About Choices.

People living with vascular conditions don’t want overnight stays in the hospital, lengthy recovery periods and scheduling issues. They want to return to their daily lives quickly. NKDHC delivers a different healthcare experience; one that is invested in people, communication and best-in-class care.

NKDHC is committed to superior service and delivering far more. Patients can expect:

Prompt appointments For dialysis access management patients, NKDHC offers same day/next day appointments when at all possible, allowing a prompt return to scheduled dialysis treatments. At the center, patients avoid the complexities of a hospital admission and return home to recover that same day.

Exceptional patient care Patients encounter a team that is kind and respectful, never indifferent. Individual needs are accommodated to ensure patients are comfortable and kept well-informed.

Efficient and customized communication The team at NKDHC partners with your physician care team, focusing on coordinating your vascular care. Immediate post-procedure reports are sent to your referring physicians and comprehensive reports follow within 24 hours after the procedure.

Patient education Patients see us as partners working to find the best treatment to fit their individual needs in vascular care. Online and printed materials are vital components of the patient experience and help patients to be well-informed about their health and available treatment options.

Whether you are a current or a new patient, thank you for entrusting your vascular care to the experts at NKDHC.

NKDHC is managed by Azura Vascular Care, a national network of outpatient vascular and ambulatory surgery centers. Our shared goal is to deliver the most advanced care there is—combining the extensive resources of a nationwide organization with the relationships, exceptional patient experience, and clinical capabilities of a trusted local provider.
