M Health Fairview interventional radiologists will provide you with innovative, minimally invasive treatments.

Our Approach

Many conditions that once required traditional open surgery can now be treated non-surgically by an interventional radiologist. An interventional radiologist is a physician specialist who uses X-rays and other imaging techniques to see inside the body and treat conditions without surgery. The procedures most commonly performed include angiograms with angioplasty/stenting for blocked arteries, chemoembolization and radiofrequency ablation for cancer, uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) for fibroids, treatment of aneurysms with coiling, and varicose vein ablation.

Procedures that once required open surgery can now be done through a small incision using catheters (small, flexible tubes) to guide devices into place. Interventional radiologists with M Health Fairview are dedicated to providing you with the quality and innovative care that you deserve and expect. They offer a wide range of procedures for conditions such as deep vein thrombosis, endocrine disease, osteoporosis, peripheral artery disease, and more.

You’ll receive excellent, quality care from highly regarded specialists from M Health Fairview. To achieve the best outcomes for you, they work closely with a specialized care team. Its members include physician assistants, clinical nurse specialists, registered nurses, and radiology technologists.
