Vascular medicine is a medical specialty which evaluates a multitude of vascular disorders, some of which are common and some of which are rare. Vascular medicine diagnoses and treats all vascular conditions. After which, your interventional radiologist will recommend the best medical, surgical or interventional treatments.
Interventional Radiology is a procedural subspecialty that began in the 1960s using minimally invasive techniques to replace open surgeries. Interventional Radiology has treatments for various medical conditions in almost every organ system throughout the body, literally from head to toe.
The interventional radiologists at Peripheral Vascular Partners specialize in treatments involving blood vessels. These procedures are done through tiny holes that enter the patient’s arteries and veins to provide pinpoint treatment right where the problem exists. The interventional radiologist uses ultrasound and X-ray fluoroscopy image guided wires to either open or close blood vessels depending on the type of issue being treated. Since the procedure is done through tiny holes in the patient’s wrist or groin, and not open surgery, there is minimal pain and recovery times are measured in hours or days unlike traditional surgery which requires weeks or months.
From the time you walk in the door, our clinical staff will guide you through the preparation — usually 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the procedure. Each procedure differs in length but can take from 30 minutes to two hours. You will then be in one of our comfortable recovery rooms for one to two hours. On average, you can expect to spend half of the day or so in our facility. You then go home that same day with mild or minimal discomfort and sleep in your own bed that night.
Because IR procedures are minimally invasive, the pain level is significantly less than open surgery or more invasive procedures.
With our minimally invasive procedures, we do not need to use general anesthetic. Depending on the procedure, we may use local anesthetics only or moderate conscious sedation through an IV. This makes the procedures we do safer with shorter recovery times.
