Interventional radiology constitutes a major advance in medicine, encompassing procedures that eliminate the need for large incisions, with far less risk, less pain and shorter recovery times than traditional surgical procedures. NHRA has a staff of fellowship-trained interventional radiologists who specialize in neurological (head and spine) and body procedures.
Patients are commonly referred to interventional radiologists for biopsies as well as for treatment of blocked blood vessels, internal bleeding, ballooning of a blood vessel (aneurysm), blocked dialysis graft, blocked bile ducts, or many other conditions. The list of conditions for which interventional radiology is effective grows continually as new procedures are developed.
