Intervention Radiology Provides An Alternative To Surgery
Dr. Gebrael, the Medical Director of the Interventional Radiology Center, specializes in these potentially lifesaving procedures that are performed under imaging guidance without the need for major surgery.
By using catheter-based embolization, ablation, and angiography techniques in many cases Interventional Radiologists are able to forgo the need for surgery. The inventors of angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, first used in the legs to treat peripheral arterial disease, Interventional Radiologists are the pioneers of minimally invasive modern medicine. In many cases, they can open blocked or narrowed blood vessels using angioplasty, stenting, or thrombolytic techniques.
Advancements in Interventional Radiology include:
- ONCOLOGY | CANCER TREATMENTS (See above)
- WOMEN’S HEALTH | FIBROID TREATMENTS. (See above)
- CARDIOVASCULAR | ARTERY AND VENOUS DISEASE. (See above)

Additional procedures include using heat and ice ablations to destroy lung, renal cell, liver and bone cancers. Other advancements include minimally invasive pain management techniques for chronic back pain.
