Interventional Radiology, Center for Minimally Invasive Therapies
Boston Medical Center's Interventional Radiology physicians are committed to providing comprehensivecare. Working in a multidisciplinary, collaborative environment, the interventional radiologists and team of specialized physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses ensure the best patient care in the New England region.
Beginning with angioplasty and stenting, interventional radiologists have been pioneering innovative treatment methods for decades. These methods have revolutionized minimally-invasive treatment, giving patients more satisfactory outcomes with less pain and shorter recovery times. Procedures that used to require open surgery can now be performed through a small incision using catheters (small, flexible tubes) to guide devices into place. Boston Medical Center's Interventional Radiology program is proud to be home to a highly-skilled team that has dedicated its training to performing these procedures and providing patients with exceptional care.
