Interventional radiologists are board-certified physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted techniques to treat cancer, peripheral artery disease, aneurysms, stroke, varicose veins, uterine fibroids and a host of other conditions. Uniquely skilled and highly trained, interventional radiologists have developed many of the nonsurgical treatments available today and continue to pioneer minimally invasive modern medicine.
CIRA boasts more than a dozen fellowship-trained interventional radiologists who studied at some of the most prestigious medical schools and hospitals in the country. CIRA interventional radiologists use X-ray, MRI, ultrasound and other means of imaging to advance a catheter in the body, usually in an artery, to non-surgically treat a patient at the source of the disease. Benefits to patients include less risk, less pain and a shorter recovery time compared to traditional, open surgery.
