HEMODIALYSIS ACCESS

Your kidneys filter wastes and excess fluids from your blood, which are then excreted in your urine. When your kidneys lose their filtering abilities, dangerous levels of fluid, electrolytes and wastes can build up in your body. In ESRD, patients need dialysis or a kidney transplant to stay alive.

Risk factors for developing chronic kidney disease include diabetes, polycystic kidney disease, hypertension, smoking, family history, age, and certain medications.

PIECE OF MIND THROUGH CUTTING EDGE INTERVENTIONS

Endovascular surgery is a less invasive form of surgery that involves using a stent graft to stabilize the weakened walls of your aorta.

​Our surgeons perform the cutting-edge implantation of fenestrated and branch endografts, offering patients minimally invasive techniques to the most complex aneurysms. Dr. Thompson brings a variety of complex endovascular skills to CVC from his training at Stanford University, one of the premier aortic programs in the country.

For the appropriate patient, open surgery still is recommended. Dr. De Natale did his training under the mentorship of E. Stanley Crawford, MD. who was the world’s expert on the Treatment and Management of Diseases of the Aorta. This allowed him to bring that expertise back to Connecticut.
