We are sub-specialized doctors called Interventional Radiologists who perform minimally invasive image guided procedures.  All procedures are performed at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, a suburban Chicago hospital located in Park Ridge, IL (Top 100 Hospitals).

Using imaging technology we are able to perform a wide range of procedures to diagnose and treat many common as well as rare disorders.  Quite often with interventional procedures, surgery can be avoided. Most procedures are performed through a single small nick in the skin.

Some of the more commonly performed procedures in Interventional Radiology include port placement for patients with cancer requiring chemotherapy, uterine fibroid embolization for treatment of symptomatic uterine fibroids, vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty for treatment of compression fractures of the spine and  angioplasty and stents for treatment of blockages of the arteries to the legs or kidneys or blockages related to other peripheral arterial disease.  

Procedures are performed when indicated following consultation with one of our interventional radiologists.  Most patients are discharged on the same day or within 24 hours.  Full pre-operative, anesthesia, recovery and observation facilities are available as needed.
