SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY JAN 17, 2020

Florida Surgical Clinic is stepping forward to address the challenges that kidney failure patients face by offering a new non-surgical approach to prepare patients for dialysis. In the process they are improving patient care and bringing hope. This past Wednesday, Florida Surgical Clinic’s Jenna Kazil, MD successfully used the new WavelinQ EndoAVF System that allowed her to create this dialysis access with a non-surgical technique. The system uses two small catheters which are inserted into an artery and a vein, magnets help pull them together, and radiofrequency energy creates a connection that can be used for access. This technique avoids some of the risks associated with an open surgery including scarring. “This endovascular, or non-surgical, approach allows us create a dialysis access with patients who have end stage renal disease which requires fewer maintenance procedures, which has been shown to last longer overall. “We are proud to bring this new healthcare technology to dialysis patients on Florida’s West Coast. It reflects our vision of bringing innovation and making it available to our great community,” said Florida Surgical Clinic’s CEO.
