Interventional Radiology at UPMC Hamot

UPMC Content 3

Many conditions that once required surgery can be treated nonsurgically by interventional radiologists.

Compared to open surgery, interventional radiology treatments typically offer less:

  • Risk
  • Pain
  • Recovery time

Conditions We Treat With Interventional Radiology

You might see an interventional radiologist as part of your comprehensive treatment plan if you suffer from:

  • Hepatitis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Kidney, liver, and lung cancers
  • Arterial disease
  • Gastrointestinal disease
  • Gynecological conditions
  • Many other disease and conditions

The interventional radiology team at UPMC Hamot uses innovative, advanced imaging-based diagnosis, with minimally invasive procedures.

In many cases, this provides earlier intervention for patients and may reduce — or even eliminate — the need for a more invasive surgery.
