Benefits of Interventional Radiology

IR procedures are nonsurgical, outpatient, same-day procedures that can often be performed in under an hour. They are also called percutaneous procedures or needle entry procedures. These recently developed techniques allow access to areas that would otherwise require a more invasive procedure, such as traditional surgery, which requires general anesthesia, a stay in the hospital, and a long recovery period. 

Non-Surgical

Our non-surgical image-guided procedures are cutting-edge technology without the need of a scalpel.

Not Painful

While it’s normal to experience mild discomfort during and post-treatment, most patients report a positive experience without any major pain.  

Outpatient Procedure

All procedures can be done on-site at the medical clinic. No general anesthesia or hospital stay is required.

Quick Recovery

Interventional radiology procedures typically involve shorter recovery periods and faster return to daily activities than traditional open surgeries. 

High Success Rate

Interventional radiology has a high success rate in diagnosing and treating a variety of medical conditions using non-surgical techniques.

Fewer Side Effects

Compared to traditional surgical procedures, interventional radiology has fewer side effects, such as reduced pain and scarring, shorter recovery times, and lower risks of complications.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the prostate gland?

The prostate gland is a male reproductive organ responsible for producing the fluid that makes up semen. It is about the size of a walnut and located below the urinary bladder at the bladder neck.

What is an enlarged prostate (BPH)?

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition in older men, where the prostate gland swells and presses against the urethra, causing problems with urination called lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). It is not cancer, but the symptoms can be similar to those of prostate cancer.

What are the symptoms of an enlarged prostate?

The symptoms of an enlarged prostate gland include trouble starting or stopping the stream of urine, urinary urgency, urinary incontinence, urinary frequency, dribbling at the end of urination, and nocturia (the need to wake up at night to urinate). As prostate growth worsens, the symptoms can become more bothersome.

What is benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)?

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition in older men in which the prostate gland enlarges and can cause urinary symptoms such as frequent urination, weak urine flow, and difficulty emptying the bladder.

What are some surgical options for treating BPH?

Common surgical options for BPH include transurethral needle ablation (TUNA), transurethral resection (TURP), open prostatectomy, transurethral microwave ablation (TUMT), and laser surgery.

What is a TURP?

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgical procedure in which a resectoscope is inserted through the penis into the urethra to remove excess prostate tissue that is blocking urine flow. It is generally considered an option for men with moderate to severe urinary problems that haven’t responded to medication.

Who is a good candidate for BPH surgery?

BPH surgery may be recommended for men who have moderate to severe urinary symptoms that are not responding to medication and are negatively impacting their quality of life. The decision to undergo surgery should be made after careful consideration and discussion with a urologist.

What are non-surgical options for an enlarged prostate (BPH)?

Non-surgical options for an enlarged prostate (BPH) include medications, dietary and lifestyle changes, and non-surgical procedures.

What is Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE)?

Prostate artery embolization (PAE) is a non-surgical outpatient procedure that involves injecting tiny particles to slow blood flow to the prostate artery responsible for feeding your enlarged prostate.

Will prostate artery embolization cure an enlarged prostate?

prostate artery embolization can effectively shrink the enlarged prostate and relieve urinary symptoms, but it is not a cure for an enlarged prostate.

How effective is prostate artery embolization?

Study results show an over 90% success rate in symptom improvement after one year.

How is an enlarged prostate (BPH) diagnosed?

A diagnosis may include history, physical exam, imaging studies such as MRI, MRA, ultrasound, and a urodynamic study, and blood tests.

What is a urodynamic study?

A urodynamic study is a test that monitors how well your bladder is working, including pressure and flow measurements and recordings of sounds as you urinate.

What are the advantages of "pinhole" procedures for an enlarged prostate?

Pinhole procedures offer fast recovery, less risk, less pain, and are done in a comfortable outpatient setting with familiar friendly staff.
