Interventional Radiology

Our division is renowned for its long history of outstanding patient care, education and research. Many endovascular treatments were pioneered at Stanford including thrombolysis for deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and stent-graft repair of thoracic aortic aneurysms.

Our group offers the entire range of vascular and nonvascular image-guided procedures. We are experts in the endovascular treatment of arterial disease from angioplasty and stenting of occluded blood vessels to endograft repair of aneurysms. For venous diseases, we offer state-of-the-art therapy for DVT, varicose veins, and chronic venous occlusion. In the realm of oncology, we specialize in image-guided tumor treatments including chemoembolization, radiofrequency ablation,cryoablation, NanoKnife ablation, and radioembolization. In women's health, we offer a variety of services to alleviate pelvic pain including uterine artery embolization for the treatment of symptomatic fibroids and gonadal vein embolization for pelvic congestion syndrome.

Our advantage, as interventional radiologists, is the ability to use advanced imaging modalities including digital subtraction fluoroscopy, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound to provide the latest endovascular therapies. As pioneers of minimally invasive surgery, we use our techniques to eliminate the need for open surgery and allow shorter recovery times.

Interventional Radiology has been described as the surgery of the new millennium. Our goal is to deliver safe, effective, and compassionate care to all of our patients. Whether you are a referring physician or a patient, we invite you to explore our section and to contact us with questions. We look forward to serving you.

We are a patient-oriented clinically intensive practice that is unusual in the field of interventional radiology. We have an inpatient admitting service, a daily outpatient consultations and follow-up clinic, and an inpatient consult service.
