standard-title Interventional Radiology
Vascular & Interventional Physicians (VIP) are Interventional Radiologists who are board certified and trained in minimally invasive targeted treatments. Their unique skills allow them to diagnose and treat patients by utilizing X-Rays and other imaging sources to advance catheters in the body; treating the source of the disease without open surgery.
Specializing in arterial and venous disorders, the physicians of VIP are involved in the management and treatment of patients with peripheral arterial disease (sometimes referred to as peripheral vascular disease), abdominal aortic aneurysm, carotid artery disease, and other arterial disorders. In addition, VIP physicians treat different diseases of the veins including varicose veins and venous insufficiency as well as deep vein thrombosis (DVT). VIP was the first physician group in Gainesville to treat varicose veins using the endovenous ablation technique, now having successfully treated over 600 patients.
Finally, our involvement in clinical trials and targeted cancer treatments offers patients the opportunity to participate in cutting edge medical care.
Vascular & Interventional Physicians (VIP) board certified spine radiologists have specialized training and experience in spinal injection procedures. The goal is always the conservative management of spine disorders, while providing permanent treament for benign and malignant spinal compression fractures and sacral insufficiency fractures.
The VIP spine radiologists are experts in treating patients with back, neck and hip pain caused by these spinal conditions: fractured vertebrae, fractured pelvis, herniated disc, sciatica, cancer, osteoporosis and arthritis. The VIP spine radiologists work with the patient and their physician to make a diagnosis and implement corrective strategies through injection to assist the patient in pain-free living.
Minimally invasive procedures performed by interventional radiologists can help patients get their life back faster as well as save health care dollars. In any case, it’s always worth knowing what your treatment options are before consenting to any surgery.
