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 are hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids are swollen veins caused by increased pressure in the rectum or anus. There are two types of hemorrhoids, internal and external. Internal hemorrhoids are located inside the rectum, while external hemorrhoids develop around the anal opening.

What do hemorrhoids look like?

Internal hemorrhoids are small, swollen veins in the rectum, while external hemorrhoids look like lumps or masses around the anus. Prolapsed hemorrhoids are internal hemorrhoids that bulge from the anal opening, while strangulated hemorrhoids are internal hemorrhoids that become trapped outside the anal opening.

What are the risk factors for developing hemorrhoids?

Age, pregnancy, being overweight, straining during bowel movements, sitting on the toilet for long periods of time, and anal intercourse are all risk factors for developing hemorrhoids.

Are hemorrhoids dangerous?

Hemorrhoids are rarely dangerous or life-threatening, but they can be very painful. They can also bleed, which can lead to anemia if left untreated. It is important to see a doctor if you have rectal bleeding to rule out other serious causes.

What are the symptoms of hemorrhoids?

The most common symptom of hemorrhoids is rectal bleeding during bowel movements. Other symptoms include pain, itching, discomfort, and the presence of a lump or mass around the anus.

How are hemorrhoids diagnosed?

Hemorrhoids are usually diagnosed through a physical exam, including a digital rectal exam. In some cases, a colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy may be recommended to rule out other conditions.

What medical procedures are available for treating hemorrhoids?

Medical procedures for treating hemorrhoids include rubber band ligation, sclerotherapy, infrared coagulation, laser surgery, hemorrhoidectomy, and hemorrhoid embolization (emborrhoid technique).

How do I know which treatment option is best for me?
