Interventional Services

Interventional radiologists (IR) are board-certified physicians who specialize in minimally invasive and targeted treatments. They offer the most in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available, in addition to diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties. IRs use X-rays, MRI and other imaging modalities to navigate a catheter in the body, usually inside of an artery, to treat diseases at the source. As the inventors of angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, which were first used in the legs to treat peripheral arterial disease, interventional radiologists pioneered minimally invasive modern medicine.

Today many conditions that once required surgery can be treated less invasively by IRs. Interventional radiology treatments offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to open surgery.

Interventional Radiology Services:

Oncology Treatments including:

-Yttrium (Y-90) Therapy

Endovascular administration of radiation beads for the treatment of primary and metastatic liver tumors.

-Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE)

Endovascular administration of chemotherapy loaded embolization beads used to treat both primary and metastatic tumors.

-Microwave, Radiofrequency and Cryo Ablation

Probes are inserted into the tumor, usually using CT or ultrasound guidance in a minimally invasive approach to destroy tumors (liver, kidney, bone, etc).

IVC Filter Placement and Removal of temporary filters

Filters can be placed to prevent clot in the legs from moving to the heart if the patient cannot take blood thinners.

Venous Access (Subcutaneous Ports, Tunneled dialysis catheters, and PICCs)

Access for chemotherapy, dialysis or other vascular needs.

Biliary and Renal Intervention

PTC (Percutaneous Transhepatic Cholangiogram), TIPS (Transjugular Intrahepatic Portal Systemic Shunt) procedure

Percutaneous Nephrostomy and ureteral stent placements.

Uterine Fibroid Embolization

Minimally invasive, non-surgical approach to treating benign uterine fibroids by using microspheres to cut off flow to the fibroids.
