In the era of minimally invasive medicine, interventional radiology (IR) is a vital component of modern medical practice. Various disorders such as aortic aneurysms, peripheral vascular disease (pain on walking, leg ulcers), varicose veins, uterine fibroids, liver tumours, deep vein thrombosis, etc, can be treated with interventional radiological techniques.
IR treatments are not only minimally invasive but are proven to be safe, less complicated, ensure a quicker recovery and offer equivalent or sometimes superior results to the conventional management of these disorders.
IR techniques use specialised angiography machines, to visualise the vascular system of the body, and treat the disease, with stents, balloons, embolisation particles, under local anaesthesia.
This obviates the need for large incisions, general anaesthesia, prolonged ICU care.
Through this website, we hope to provide you with information about the procedures performed, benefits of Interventional Radiology and where we offer these facilities. We would regularly update various practical cases, their treatments and follow up advice.
