Many conditions and injuries that once required open surgery can now be treated with minimally invasive procedures which can result in less pain and a faster recovery for you. The interventional radiology physicians at our Vascular and Interventional Center (SVIC) combine advanced technologies with minimally invasive imaging to diagnose and treat a wide spectrum of conditions. The doctors often use just a small needle or catheter to perform the entire procedure.
Interventional radiology encompases diagnostic and treatment procedures performed using image-guided technology to enable doctors to see inside your body during procedures. Some of the imaging techniques we use include ultrasound, X-ray and CT and MRI scans.
Sentara Norfolk General Hospital (SNGH) is the only Level I Trauma Center, Quaternary Care Center and Comprehensive Stroke Center in the Tidewater area. SNGH is also a teaching hospital which means cutting edge research is being performed while training the next generation of physicians. We are proud to offer the Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR) fellowship program at our institution.
All of the Interventional Radiologists are board certified physicians with additional specialized training in their field. They are Assistant Professors at the Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) and regularly give lectures to residents, medical students and physicians throughout the community. Choosing to have your care here means you are receiving the best treatment possible by experienced fellowship-trained physicians and an established care team.
