Interventional Radiology

1

Most interventional radiology procedures for cancer require a small incision the size of a pinhole, which reduces pain and your risk for complication in patients. Compared to traditional cancer treatments involving chemotherapy, open surgery, or radiation, interventional radiology also allows for a quicker recovery, as most procedures can be completed in one day. Many patients are discharged the same day of their procedure within 24 hours, getting them back to the life and activities they love faster.

From performing biopsies for cancer diagnosis to alleviating pain and other symptoms through therapeutic procedures, our Interventional Radiology Unit can address a variety of cancer conditions that may have required surgery in the past.

We use Interventional Radiology to reduce or eliminate tumors using radioactive particles, heat, cold, and electric current while minimizing the impact on the surrounding healthy organs. In addition to treating tumors, our compassionate team also work closely with oncologists and surgeons to help minimize discomfort and dramatically improve the quality of life for palliative care patients.
