What is Interventional Radiology?
Interventional Radiology is a subspecialty of Radiology that provides minimally invasive image-guided treatment of medical conditions that once required open surgery.
By harnessing the power of advanced imaging, Interventional Radiologists can see inside your body and treat complex conditions with lower complication and excellent success rates.
What are the benefits of interventional radiology?
Interventional radiologists are on the front lines of clinical advances and use of the latest image-guided technologies. They are board-certified physicians who are trained in both radiology and minimally invasive therapies. No other specialty possesses this unique combination of skills!
Benefits of minimally invasive techniques:
- No general anesthesia is required (only local anesthesia)
- No scar tissue formation
- Shorter hospital stay and shorter recovery time
- Less painful
- More effective than traditional therapies
- Lower risk of complications
- Save lives
