As Interventional Radiologists, we perform minimally invasive procedures to treat a variety of medical conditions. To learn more about the conditions we treat and services we provide, please visit these links to www.sirweb.org.
Abdominal aortic aneurysms – A weak, dilated (ballooning) area of the aorta that when it expands too much, is at risk of rupturing.
Angiography– An X-ray examination of the arteries and veins to diagnose blockages and other blood vessel problems.
Angioplasty & stent placement – a technique used to restore blood flow to narrowed or obstructed arteries. In some cases, a stent is installed during the Angioplasty to ensure normal blood flow.
Over 1.5 million people were diagnosed with cancer last year. As Interventional radiologist, we are proud to provide minimally invasive treatments for several types of cancer.
Deep Vein Thrombosis – (DVT) is the formation of a blood clot, (or thrombus) in the deep leg vein.
Gastrostomy (feeding tubes)– a tube that is inserted into the abdomen for patients that aren’t able to swallow food.
Hypertension & End-Stage Renal Disease – (also known as Renovascular hypertension) is high blood pressure due to a narrowing of the arteries that deliver blood to the kidneys.
Female Infertility – a blockage or narrowed fallopian tube is the most common form of female infertility.
Liver disease –liver diseases, such as Portal Hypertension (obstructed blood flow to the liver) and Bile Duct Obstruction (obstruction suppressing bile drainage from the liver), can be corrected with stents and minimally invasive techniques.
Needle biopsy – a small needle, guided by imaging, to the affected area for sampling.
Osteoporosis and Vertebroplasty – Osteoporosis (the thining or loss of bone density) increases the risk of fracture. With Vertebroplasty, medical-grade bone cement is introduced to the collapsed vertebra, reducing pain and helps prevent future breaks.
Pelvic pain (chronic) – (or pelvic congestion syndrome) is due to varicose veins in the groin or pelvis.
Peripheral arterial disease and Women and Vascular Disease – these are arties in the legs that are clogged or narrowed
Pulmonary Embolism – a blockage of the one or more arteries in the lung.
Stroke and carotid artery disease – a clot or burst blocking blood vessels in the brain from oxygen and nutrients, causing the brain to starve.
Trauma – Embolization is an interventional technique used to slow blood loss by introducing blood clotting agents through the artery and into the blood vessel.
Uterine Fibroids – benign growths, found in the muscular walls of the uterus.
Varicoceles & Male Infertility – dilation of the vein in the scrotum that can cause pain, atrophy and fertility problems.
Varicose Veins – enlarged or dilated veins, typically found in the legs, which have malfunctioned, causing blood that should be moving toward the heart to move backwards and pool in the leg.
Venous access catheters – a simple, pain-free way for doctors or nurses to draw blood or administer medication or nutrients.
