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
  • Cancer
    • 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
