Interventional radiologists use minimally invasive techniques to treat many conditions that once required open surgery. This highly specialized practice uses tiny catheters and miniature instruments, allowing physicians to perform a variety of complex diagnostic and interventional procedures in the arteries, veins, and almost every organ in the body.
Through these revolutionary techniques, patients can avoid surgery – and often reduce their risk and their recovery time. Interventional radiologists treat complicated conditions safely and effectively, leaving patients with only a small bandage to show for it.
Interventional radiologists are board-certified physicians with advanced training in diagnostic radiology, followed by additional training in vascular and interventional procedures. This comprehensive background in state-of-the-art imaging techniques allows them to quickly and accurately visualize, diagnose and treat appropriate conditions without the need for open surgery.
