Dialysis involves accessing the bloodstream through a surgically-prepared access site that allows blood to pass through a special filter of a dialysis machine, be cleansed and return to your body. There are two access options:

Fistula

This surgical procedure connects your artery and vein, usually in your forearm. This method is often the best kind of access because your own tissue is used, which means a lower chance of infection and clotting.

Catheter

This option uses a tube to connect your artery and vein under the skin. A graft might require additional maintenance or repair, but can last for several years.

Time Commitment: 3 treatments each week.  Each treatment lasts 3–4 hours.
