We are a regional referral center specializing in imaging guided procedures.  Using imaging technology we are able to perform a wide range of procedures to diagnose and treat many common as well as rare disorders.  Often with interventional procedures surgery can be avoided.  In fact we are able to treat some disorders for which there is no surgical alternative.

Some of the more commonly performed procedures in Interventional Radiology include uterine artery embolization for treatment of symptomatic uterine fibroids, vertebroplasty for treatment of compression fractures of the spine and  angioplasty and stents for treatment of blockages of the arteries to the kidneys or blockages related to other peripheral vascular disease

Procedures are performed when indicated following consultation with one of our interventional radiologists.  Most patients are dismissed within 24 hours and often the same day.  Full pre-operative, anesthesia, recovery and observation facilities are available as needed.

Our doctors are subspecialty certified in Interventional Radiology by the American Board of Radiology.  We have a dedicated staff of 14 nurses and technologists who work exclusively in the interventional suites.  Our imaging equipment is the finest available anywhere and is completely state of the art.  We have centralized scheduling and communications to make sure the patient's experience is well coordinated and hassle free.  Daytime and after hours phone numbers are below.

We continuously evaluate quality assurance data.  Estimates of risk given on the following pages for various procedures are derived from this data as well as from the medical literature.  We also continuously reassess our practices to minimize medical errors.  The facilities are of course reviewed regularly by the Joint Commission on Hospital Accreditation.
