What is an Interventional Radiologist?

DOC and PATIENT

Interventional radiologists are board-certified
physicians with additional advanced training in minimally invasive, targeted
treatments performed using medical imaging to guide them. They are experts
in the delicate procedures necessary for the treatment of venous insufficiency.

Although you may have never heard of an Interventional Radiologist, they are
actually the pioneers of minimally invasive modern medicine. The core focus
of Interventional Radiology is to diagnose and treat patients using the least
invasive techniques available. Minimally invasive procedures minimize risk
to the patient, improve outcomes, and eliminate long hospital stays.

These highly specialized physicians perform procedures through tiny incisions
with thin catheters, wires, balloons and other low-profile medical devices
in place of scalpels and large incisions used during traditional surgery.
Thus there is no need for general anesthesia, long hospital stays, or even
sutures/stitches.

Interventional Radiologists are capable of performing a variety of procedures
that treat a wide range of diseases from hypertension or cancer to blood clots,
uterine fibroids, gastrointestinal problems and venous insufficiency.

Many conditions that once required surgery can now be treated non-surgically
by Interventional Radiologists. If you have varicose veins and are seeking
treatment, be sure to ask your doctor to refer you to a Miller Vein Interventional
Radiologist. The difference in treatment and achievable results will amaze you!

“After years of suffering with excruciating leg cramps and trying
remedies from bananas to homeopathic powders, I stumbled upon Miller Vein.
If you’ve had trouble with varicose veins in the past and had ‘stripping’
procedure, to no avail, it’s worth picking up the phone and calling Miller Vein.
Dr. Miller uses a cutting edge technique of placing a catheter in to the vein and
lasering out the problem. Although this may sound painful, the entire experience
rates high on my list. I’d much prefer taking a trip here than getting a
cavity filled!”
