Vascular and Interventional Radiology (VIR)
- Three fellowship-trained vascular and interventional radiologists, and two body-imagers, who perform nonvascular image-guided interventions, comprise our IR Team.
- Our VIR Section offers a full spectrum of vascular and non-vascular minimally-invasive interventions which have been shown to be cost-effective, result in a decreased length of hospitalization and faster recovery.
- The list of procedures we perform includes, but is not limited to, the following categories: arterial interventions including carotid, visceral and peripheral stenting, aortic and peripheral stent grafts for aneurysmal disease, embolization for trauma and hemorrhage, catheter-directed arterial thrombolysis, uterine fibroid embolization; venous interventions including vena cava filter placement and retrieval, venous access, dialysis access thrombectomy, catheter-directed venous thrombolysis, venous recanalization/stenting, varicocele embolization, pelvic congestion syndrome treatment, varicose veins ablation, treatment of portal hypertension including TIPS; oncologic interventions including percutaneous tumor ablation, chemoembolization, radioembolization; gastrointestinal access for feeding and decompression; genitourinary interventions including nephrostomy and ureteric placement; biliary interventions including drainage procedures and stent placement; diagnostic biopsies and drainage procedures.
- The IR Section has a fully functioning outpatient clinic where we see our patients prior to treatment and follow them longitudinally after an intervention.
