Services Offered

The Department of Interventional Radiology has Interventional radiologists who have the necessary clinical care skills to manage each patient’s care. Interventional radiologists work closely with a patient’s primary care or other physician to be sure the patient receives the best possible care.Some advantages of interventional radiology:

  • Risk, pain, and recovery time are significantly reduced in many cases
  • Many procedures can be performed without an overnight stay in the hospital
  • General anesthesia is usually not required
  • Procedures are often less expensive than the surgical alternatives

In addition to performing all of the standard interventional procedures available today, we also offer novel approaches that have only recently been developed. Our particular areas of specialization include the following:

Vascular Procedures:

The treatment of various vascular and endovascular diseases has been the mainstay of the department of interventional radiology. Endovascular procedures have been used to open clogged arteries and to maintain the integrity of weakened blood vessels, such as the aorta. In the department of Interventional Radiology, following vascular procedures are performed:

  • Balloon Angioplasty
  • Stent Placement
  • Endoluminal Grafts for Aneurysms
2. Intervention Procedures for Cancer:

Most cancers are treated with surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or some combination of these treatments, depending on the type and stage of a patient’s cancer. Interventional radiologists, working together with oncologists to treat many cancer patients and to improve quality of life. The following interventional procedures for cancer are:

  • Chemoembolization
  • Radio Frequency Tumor Ablation (RFA)
  • Relief of Obstructions
  • Tumor Biopsy
3. Embolization for Uterine Fibroids :

Uterine fibroids are benign tumors of muscle cells and fibrous tissue that form inside the uterus. Fibroids may cause no symptoms, while in other women produce heavy vaginal bleeding and “bulk symptoms” (pelvic pain, pressure on the bladder causing a sensation of fullness, lower back pain). Fibroids can also be a cause of pregnancy loss in some women.Treatment options for uterine fibroids that are causing symptoms include hormonal therapy (to temporarily shrink the fibroids), surgical removal of one or more fibroids (myomectomy), or removal of the uterus (hysterectomy). More recently, a minimally invasive procedure has become widely available called uterine fibroid embolization. For fibroid tumors to survive, they require a continuous supply of nourishment from blood vessels. If these blood vessels are blocked, the fibroids will gradually shrink down in size. Uterine fibroid embolization is a procedure that doctors use to shut down blood supply to the fibroids by injecting tiny sand-like particles into the arteries of the uterus so that shrinkage will occur.

4. Treatment of Congenital Vascular Malformations:

Congenital vascular malformations are disorders of the blood vessels that a person is born with. The serious types of vascular malformations can occur internally and require treatment. These abnormal tangles of arteries and veins can cause pain and bleeding, and may deprive normal tissues of their blood supply.Interventional radiologists employ a minimally invasive method called "embolization," which effectively shuts down the flow of blood to vascular malformations.

5. Other Interventional Procedures:

Endovascular and other image-guided interventional techniques cover a wide range of procedures and clinical problems, including:

  • venous access
  • hemodialysis access
  • certain nerve blocks
  • treatment of venous disease (thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, varicose veins, varicocele, and congenital malformations)
  • management of traumatic hemorrhage
  • percutaneous abscess drainage

In addition to this, various interventional radiological procedures performed which can be categorized as per the department.
