Today, many conditions that once required surgery can be treated nonsurgically by interventional radiologists.
Interventional radiologists at Allegany Imaging treat a wide range of conditions, including:
- Benign tumors including uterine fibroids
- Malignant tumors leading to liver, kidney, or lung cancer
- Peripheral vascular disease
- Blocked arteries using balloon angioplasty and intravascular stent placement
Compared to open surgery, interventional radiology treatments typically offer less:
- Recovery time
Interventional radiologists interact directly with the patient. From preoperative to post-operative, our physicians make sure the patient is comfortable and understands exactly what is taking place both during their procedure and what the patient can expect after the procedure.
