Interventional radiology is a highly specialized field of medicine that uses medical imaging, like X-ray, to provide targeted, minimally invasive therapy for numerous medical conditions. Using their expertise in human anatomy and specialized imaging equipment, our interventional radiologists guide small needles, wires and catheters into every area of the body to treat a host of conditions, many of which would have previously required major open surgery.
Benefits of image-guided intervention
Often referred to as “pinhole surgery,” interventional radiology procedures are the most minimally invasive procedures performed at North Suburban. The procedure is performed through a tiny nick in the skin, as opposed to large open incisions previously required.
This makes the procedure safer and significantly decreases pain and recovery times. The majority of interventional radiology procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis with no hospitalization required.
