What is Vascular Interventional Radiology?

Overview

Vascular interventional radiology (VIR) procedures are advances in medicine that often replace open surgical procedures. VIR endovascular experts specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments performed using imaging guidance techniques to "see" inside the body. Imaging techniques allow them to guide narrow tubes (catheters) and other micro instruments remotely through the blood vessels and other pathways of the body to the site of a problem. 
These image guided techniques allow them to treat a variety of medical disorders without surgery. VIR procedures are generally easier for the patient because they involve no large incisions, less risk, less pain and shorter recovery times. Often with interventional procedures surgery can be avoided. In fact, VIR are able to treat some disorders for which there is no surgical alternative.
Vascular interventional radiology is one of the most dynamic medical fields today as these physicians adapt a technique proven to work for one problem and find a way to apply it to another.
 These minimally invasive techniques allow Dr. Azher Iqbal to treat most patients outside of a hospital setting in the comfort of a office based facility.
