What are Interventional Radiologists?

Interventional radiologists are board-certified vascular expert 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. They use X-rays such as CT and fluoroscopy, and ultrasound, usually in an artery, to treat at the source of the disease non-surgically. 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
