Interventional Radiology (IR) is a medical specialty that involves the utilization of minimally invasive techniques under image guidance to diagnose and treat a wide spectrum of disease states.
The award winning Mohawk Valley Vascular Center was created to provide comprehensive vascular and interventional radiology care to the Mohawk Valley region. Since its inception at the St. Luke’s Campus, the vascular and IR program has grown in terms of suites, staff and diversity of procedures.
Our experienced team, made up of board certified radiologists, providers, caring nurses and skilled radiology technologists work together every day to provide top level care. We offer the most in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties.
What We Do
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. Complexprocedures may involve a overnight hospital observation. IR uses cutting-edge technology to perform surgery with minimal invasiveness such as:
- Fluoroscopic procedures
- CT Microwave Ablation/Cryoablation
- Computed Tomography procedures
- TCAR procedure
- 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.
- Y90 Therapy
