Our board-certified physicians offer minimally invasive solutions for a wide variety of conditions that affect blood flow through your veins and arteries. Learn more about the advantages of using imaging technology rather than traditional surgery to treat varicose veins, peripheral arterial disease (PAD), uterine fibroids, and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

How is imaging technology used by vascular specialists?

Interventional radiology (IR) is a medical specialty that uses imaging technology to identify and treat numerous diseases. IR procedures are an integral part of modern medical care, and in many cases, have replaced traditional surgery such as open-heart bypass surgery used to restore normal blood flow to your heart.    

Rather than scalpels and long incisions, vascular IR specialists use small cameras and surgical instruments contained within tiny tubes (catheters) inserted through puncture-size skin incisions to access the blood vessels targeted for treatment.

The advanced imaging systems we use at Vein & Vascular Solutions NYC provide high definition, real-time views of veins and arteries deep inside the body. These enhanced views allow us to accurately evaluate the function of these systems and guide our movements as we perform surgery and other treatments within the blood vessel itself.

What are the benefits of IR?  

Due to its minimally invasive nature, an IR procedure offers many benefits compared to traditional surgery, including:

Note that many vascular conditions respond very well to IR techniques. In a few cases, however, your provider may recommend traditional surgery based on the results of your initial evaluation.  

What conditions can you treat with IR?

From wound care to varicose veins, imaging technology plays a role in virtually every service we provide here at Vein & Vascular Solutions NYC.

IR procedures our highly trained vascular specialists offer include:

Our specialists also incorporate imaging technology to create and maintain dialysis access sites and medical devices (port placement) used when frequent vein access is required for various intravenous (IV) treatments such as chemotherapy.
