INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY - FMH

INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY

FMH Interventional Radiology is described as surgery of the new millennium. It is minimally invasive that involves procedures which are done in a hospital setting and typically consists of placing cat-heters in a patient or performing other therapeutic maneuvers on a patient. Advanced imaging tech-nology provides high resolution pictures, so interventional radi-ologists (board-certified physicians who specialize in minimally inv-asive, targeted treatments) can navigate tiny instruments such as catheters (small tubes) through blood vessels to reach certain parts of the body.

This procedure can treat various conditions non-surgically, including various cancers and liver disease. Interventional radiology proce-dures reduce side effects typically associated with traditional cancer treatments, including surgery, ch-emotherapy and radiation the-rapy. However, side effects, such as fatigue and pain, may occur. Integrative oncology services can help you manage any side effects that you experience during treatment.
