Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiologists are physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments performed using imaging guidance. Interventional Radiology procedures may be used in place of certain surgical procedures, resulting in no large incisions, less risk, less pain and shorter recovery periods.

Advantages of Interventional Radiology

  • Most procedures can be performed on an out-patient basis or require only a short hospital stay
  • General anesthesia is generally no required
  • Risk, pain and recovery time are often significantly reduced
  • The procedures are often less expensive than surgery or other alternatives
