vir_pic3Vascular and interventional radiology (VIR) is a specialized field which has evolved from a diagnostic subspecialty to one aimed at treating various disease processes, thereby avoiding future surgeries. Procedures are performed in the VIR suites using imaging such as ultrasound, fluoroscopy or x-ray, and CT scanning for guidance. Instead of large incisions required for some surgeries, these procedures are performed through tiny holes made in the skin such that small catheters or needles can be guided to the treatment site for the application of the appropriate treatment. Applications of such techniques include uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), oncology interventions such as radiofrequency ablation (RFA), chemoembolization, and therasphere treatment, vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty for spine fractures, and laser varicose vein ablation.

The VIR division is comprised of 9 procedure rooms with 7 physicians. We utilize a clinic with 10 patient rooms for our pre-procedure and post-procedure visits.
