Excellent outcomes and dedicated vascular care. Ever closer to you.

At STAR Vascular Access Center, the number one priority is you. Proudly serving the communities in and around San Antonio since 2007, this center has been providing superior vascular care to patients in a professional and compassionate manner that demonstrates respect for the individual.

Specializing in dialysis access management, STAR Vascular Center treats dysfunctional dialysis accesses in a timely manner, ensuring that you leave the center with a fully functioning access for a quick return to your regularly scheduled dialysis treatments. The center also specializes in minimally invasive, image-guided procedures for the treatment of peripheral artery disease (PAD) and varicose veins.

Board-certified medical director, Tim Cabrera, MD, is an interventional nephrologist who leads a team of vascular specialists, registered nurses and technicians. The center’s highly trained staff offers the personal attention that patients expect and deserve—before, during, and after each procedure.

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. STAR Vascular Access Center delivers a different healthcare experience; one that is invested in people, communication and best-in-class care.  

STAR Vascular Access Center is committed to superior service and delivering far more. Patients can expect:

Prompt appointments For dialysis access management patients, STAR Vascular Access Center offers same day/next day appointments when at all possible, allowing a prompt return to scheduled dialysis treatments. Patients seeking treatment for other vascular conditions will experience convenient scheduling of appointments. 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 STAR Vascular Access Center 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 STAR Vascular Access Center.

STAR Vascular Access Center is managed by Azura Vascular Care, a national network of outpatient vascular and ambulatory surgery centers.

Peripheral Artery Disease Treatment

Peripheral Artery Disease Treatment

This buildup—called plaque—narrows your arteries, often reducing or blocking the flow of blood. Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is most commonly seen in the legs, but also can be present in the arteries that carry blood from your heart to your head, arms, kidneys and stomach. Nearly everyone who has PAD­, even those who do not have leg symptoms, suffer from an inability to walk as fast or as far as they could before PAD. In all, PAD affects 8 to 12 million people in the United States, especially those that are 50 and older. If you are diagnosed with PAD, the sooner you are treated, the lower your risk of the disease progressing. Talk to Dr. Timoteo Cabrera about minimally invasive treatment options.

Procedures Include:

Port or PICC Line Placement

Port or PICC Line Placement

If you are receiving treatment such as chemotherapy, it may involve frequent injections and the need for accessible veins. A port or PICC placement can help make these procedures more comfortable for you, especially if your treatment requires frequent access to the bloodstream for medication delivery or blood withdrawal. Talk to Dr. Timoteo Cabrera about how you can spare your veins from frequent needle sticks.

Varicose Vein Treatment

Varicose Vein Treatment

Varicose veins are chronic and recurrent conditions. The variety of treatments available does not offer a cure, but rather a control of the condition. Successfully treated veins cannot come back. However, your inborn tendency to develop new veins will not be cured by this or any other form of treatment. The staff at STAR Vascular Access Center treats venous insufficiency completely, removing all backward-flowing veins, making your treatment for varicose veins as thorough as possible.

I just returned from having 3 procedures done at Star Vascular and could not be more delighted and impressed with the combination of professionalism and compassion shown by everyone. I've had 12 surgeries or procedures in the last year and rate my experience today at the very top from all aspects. I think today was typical with lots of patients, lots of demands on staff but I was in and out in 2 hours which included recovery time and believe it could not have been done more efficiently anywhere. P.S. I don't do surveys or write reviews but am so appreciative for my treatment today I felt compelled to tell someone.

Been there a few times, once my fistula clog up. Dr Cabera and and Dr Greges are great. I had a problem with Dr Ankwe. Felt pain through my procedure and would not explain what he was doing. Even after I was crying, I felt like an animal being experimented on. If you go there do not let this man work on you unless you want to experience pain or od on pain medication. Other than that, the nurse staff was great and even the people that work in the rooms were really nice. Marco (PA) was really friendly and explained the procedure.
