Because we are a teaching hospital, UAMS offers the latest procedures using state-of-the-art equipment and technology. The caring and compassionate specialists at our Interventional Radiology Clinic use sophisticated imaging technology to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures.
Many procedures that once required surgery can be treated nonsurgically by interventional radiologists. Using minimally invasive procedures provides many benefits to you.
- Lower risk
- Less pain
- Shorter recovery time
Interventional radiologists are board-certified physicians with additional advanced training in minimally invasive, targeted treatments.
