Interventional radiologists are board-certified physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments. They offer the most in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties. They use X-rays, MRI and other imaging to advance a catheter in the body, usually in an artery, to treat at the source of the disease non-surgically. As the inventors of angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, which were first used in the legs to treat peripheral arterial disease, interventional radiologists pioneered minimally invasive modern medicine.
Today many conditions that once required surgery can be treated nonsurgically by interventional radiologists and interventional neurologists. Interventional radiology treatments offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to open surgery.
What We Do
Interventional Radiology (IR) is a medical specialty that involves the utilization of minimally invasive techniques under image
guidence to diagnose and treat a wide spectrum of disease states.
Peripherial Vascular Disease
Endovascular treatment of poor arterial blood flow in legs and arms and abdominal aortic aneurism repairs.
Biopsies, yttrium-90 radioembolization, chemoembolization, percutaneous microwave ablation and portacaths.
Fistulagrams with angioplasty, declotting, stenting and insertion of hemodialysis catheters.
Uterine fibroid embolization and treatment of pelvic congestion syndrome.
Treatments of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism and insertion of inferior vena cava filters.
Our procedures, although diverse in nature, are typically performed on an outpatient basis, with light sedation. Complex
procedures may involve a overnight hospital observation. IR uses cutting-edge technology to perform surgery with minimal
invasiveness such as:
CT Microwave Ablation/Cryoablation
Computed Tomography procedures
Uses a special transcarotid neuroprotection system (NPS) is designed to reduce the risk of stroke during the insertion of the stent.
WavelinQ™ EndoAVF System procedure
Creates an arteriovenous (AV) fistula, necessary for patients with chronic kidney disease needing bloodstream access for hemodialysis.
