Interventional Radiology (IR) combines imaging technology with minimally invasive surgical tools to aid in diagnosis and treatment.
Conditions We Diagnose and Treat
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
- Swelling or potential rupturing of the aortic artery wall, located in the abdomen
- Particularly primary and metastatic liver cancer, renal cell carcinoma and primary and metastatic lung cancer
- Carotid Artery Disease
- Fat and cholesterol buildup in arteries in the neck that can lead to stroke if not remedied
- Pelvic Congestion Syndrome
- Veins in the pelvic and reproductive organs are enlarged and drain slowly, often causing chronic pelvic pain in women under 50
- Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
- Leg arteries narrow, causing cramping, pain and even heart attack or stroke
- Uterine Fibroids
- Noncancerous growths in the uterus, fibroids can cause pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding and even infertility
- Spinal Fractures
- Osteoporosis can cause the spine to compress and fracture, which is incredibly painful and limits mobility
- Varicose Veins
- Unsightly varicose veins on the legs and thighs can be a symptom of venous insufficiency, a condition that causes blood to pool in your feet and legs instead of returning to the heart
- Waveling Fistula Creation
- Dialysis fistula creation for hemodialysis access in patients who have chronic kidney disease and need dialysis, using a completely endovascular approach.
