Guided by a variety of imaging tools, our interventional radiologists provide diagnosis/biopsy and targeted, minimally-invasive treatment directly to the tumor. This can be accomplished by inserting a needle directly into the tumor and administering either heat or cold energy to burn or freeze tumors. We can also inject high doses of chemotherapy or radiation (Y90) directly into the tumor, which can offer an adjunct for tumor therapy, pain relief and, ultimately, shortens the recovery time and lowers the chance of complications. These procedures are most often done on an outpatient basis and usually do not require a hospital stay. In fact, we are proud to be the only outpatient center in Indiana offering outpatient Y90 therapy, a safe, highly-effective treatment for cancer in the liver that targets tumors with a high dose of radiation without affecting other, healthy parts of the body.
Women experience unique health issues, such as uterine fibroids, common benign tumors of the uterus that affect 20-40% of premenopausal women. Our radiologists treat this condition as well as pelvic pain with a safer, minimally-invasive procedure that has a quicker recovery, lower complication rate and helps preserve the uterus.
Our physicians treat a variety of conditions specific to men’s health, such as prostate enlargement, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a common condition that affects men as they age. We also treat varicoceles, enlargement of the veins in the scrotum. Learn more about how men can benefit from our vascular and interventional radiology services.
