Interventional Radiology

This minimally invasive procedure is used to treat problems inside your body from heart care to fetal surgery. Because it's not open surgery you will experience shorter recovery times, less side effects, less scarring and less or no general anesthesia. It is often a good choice for people who are not candidates for open surgery.

The many uses of interventional radiology include:

  • Cancer treatments
  • Catheter placement
  • Endovenous laser ablation of varicose veins
  • Stenting
  • Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS)
  • Peripheral vascular disease treatment
  • Uterine fibroid embolization
  • Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty
