Message from the Division Chair

Welcome to the division of vascular interventional radiology. Our team of highly-skilled physicians and collaborative clinicians use the latest technologies to perform a variety of challenging vascular and non-vascular procedures. We further the mission of the Department of Radiology by providing advanced medical education, developing innovative new procedures and providing compassionate patient care. ~ Malcolm K. Sydnor Jr., M.D.

Overview

Many conditions that once required surgery can now be treated non-surgically by an interventional radiologist. An interventional radiologist is a physician who sub-specializes in minimally invasive procedures using imaging guidance with x-ray, ultrasound and computed tomography (CT). The minimally invasive procedures offered by interventional radiology have less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to open surgery.

Our interventional radiologists evaluate patients in their own clinics and admit patients to an interventional radiology service in the hospital. Our specialists also work in conjunction with referring physicians to determine optimal patient care. 

Our specialists have extensive experience to handle the most complex and diverse medical conditions and to provide an ever-expanding range of minimal invasive procedures. These procedures, when compared to traditional open surgeries, have excellent results, low morbidity and reduced recovery time.

Procedures

We perform a variety of challenging vascular and non-vascular procedures, including:
