Our interventional radiology services are conducted by board-certified physicians using state-of-the-art technology. With few or no incisions, interventional radiology provides less pain during treatment and faster recovery after.
Interventional radiology at Franciscan Health is staffed by board-certified physicians who use advanced technology to perform a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Many of these procedures are minimally invasive. Interventional radiologists use X-rays and MRIs to guide them when advancing catheters, wires, and other small instruments through the body, usually in an artery, to the source of the disease non-surgically. With few or no incisions, interventional radiology allows for less pain and a quicker recovery time for patients.
Interventional radiologists are board-certified physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments. They offer the most in-depth knowledge of the least-invasive treatments available coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties.
Today many conditions that once required surgery can be treated non-surgically by interventional radiologists. Interventional radiology treatments offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to open surgery.
