A new field of medicine
Over the past decade, interventional radiology has become one of the fastest-growing fields of medicine, winning over both physicians and patients seeking safer and less invasive treatments for common diseases and painful conditions.
An interventional radiologist is one of the most highly trained doctors in all of medicine. A minimum of 13 years of education and training are required to become board certified in this specialty.
Like a regular radiologist, an interventional radiologist uses medical imaging technology to look inside the body. What’s different is that they use this imaging to also precisely guide therapy, with a catheter through the body’s vascular system to treat disease or with a needle to deliver medicine directly to the source of pain.
These treatments are safe and proven effective. They require almost no downtime compared with traditional surgery and they can get you back to your regular routine faster.
If you are suffering from one of the conditions we treat, we encourage you to speak with us or ask us to consult with your doctor.
