Medical District Vascular Center Chicago

Dialysis Access Management (Fistulas and Grafts)

We understand how important it is for patients to be on a regular dialysis treatment schedule, and that reliable vascular access is an essential part of care and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. At MDVC, our clinicians will work with patients to develop a routine of regular performance checks to help ensure the proper function of each dialysis graft or fistula. When needed, we offer a comprehensive array of minimally invasive outpatient treatments to restore function to the graft or fistula so that patients can resume normal activities as quickly as possible.

Peripheral Angioplasty and Stenting

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD or PVD) often goes undiagnosed for years, and it is vital to detect this condition as early as possible. With early detection and management, the risk of serious adverse cardiovascular events, including limb loss decreases significantly. We offer a complete suite of screening and diagnostic techniques for PAD, including Vascular Ultrasound, Segmental Limb Pressure Measurement and Diagnostic Angiogram.


If Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) has been diagnosed, we offer the most advanced, minimally invasive treatments to help restore proper blood flow and help our patients maintain a healthy, active quality of life. Procedures such as balloon angioplasty, stent placement and atherectomy can help to restore blood circulation, relieve symptoms and prevent serious adverse long term outcomes, including limb loss.

IVC Filter Placement and Retrieval

If a risk of blood clots has been diagnosed, or if there is a scheduled surgery coming up, an Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filter might be recommended. This is a simple outpatient procedure that our physicians can perform quickly. Then, when the filter is no longer needed, we are able to remove it utilizing the same minimally invasive techniques on an outpatient basis.
