Interventional Radiology and Imaging

Interventional Radiology and Imaging

Interventional Radiology treatments are minimally invasive in comparison to the open and laparoscopic surgery. Many of the IR procedures use needles to reach the target through the skin, which is also called pinhole surgery.

What does an Interventional Radiologist do?

An Interventional Radiologist requires the essential skills like diagnostic image interpretation, the movement control over needles and the fine use of catheter tubes & wires to reach the exact location for the surgery.

Benefits of Interventional Radiology:-

  • It offers less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Faster recovery

Patients who have higher risk from Anaesthesia will also get benefit from this technology as Intervention experts use moderate sedation.

As most of the Radiology Interventional Radiology Procedures are outpatient, the biggest benefit is that patients can go home the same day or the next day of the surgery.

The Expert Interventional Radiologist – Dr. Manjeet Sherawat, MBBS, MD Radiology , Fellowship in Interventional radiology,   offers his precious services to the Signature Hospital. He has a personal belief in providing the best treatment to all his patients through minimally invasive medical procedures.
