Holland Hospital offers the latest in Interventional Radiology care to Lakeshore residents.
International Radiology procedures offer Holland
Hospital patients an alternative to some surgical procedures, with the
benefits of smaller incisions, less pain and faster recovery times.
Interventional Radiologists (IR) specialists use highly advanced digital
imaging technology and minimally invasive procedures to treat disease
and injury. In many cases Interventional Radiology can replace more invasive
procedures, minimizes risk, and involves less pain and recovery time than
Interventional Radiology utilizes the most advanced technology available to
perform image-guided procedures to treat a wide variety of diseases throughout
the body. State-of-the-art imaging techniques including fluoroscopy, ultrasound,
computed tomography (CT scans) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are utilized
to guide the placement of needles, catheters and devices directly to target
sites deep within the body through a small skin incision. These procedures are
often performed under local anesthesia with intravenous (IV) sedation and
typically do not require general anesthesia.
