Interventional Radiology

The Department of Interventional Radiology at Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute stands at the forefront of modern medical practice, revolutionizing patient care through minimally invasive procedures. With a team of highly skilled Interventional Radiologists, cutting-edge technology, and a commitment to advancing healthcare, the department is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art solutions for a diverse range of medical conditions.

The Department is equipped with state-of-the-art imaging technology that enables Interventional Radiologists to perform procedures with unparalleled precision. High-resolution X-ray machines, fluoroscopy units, ultrasound machines, and advanced CT scanners are among the cutting-edge tools used to guide interventions. Many Interventional Radiology procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to return home shortly after the procedure. This minimizes hospital stays, reduces recovery times, and enhances overall patient comfort.

The department's success lies in its team of expert Interventional Radiologists. These specialists are extensively trained in using imaging techniques like X-rays, CT scans, and ultrasound to guide procedures. Their proficiency in image-guided interventions ensures accurate and targeted treatments, leading to improved outcomes for patients. 

Diseases that our specialist treats:

  • Varicose veins: These are enlarged, twisted veins, often occurring in the legs. They result from weakened vein walls and valves, causing blood pooling. Treatment options range from lifestyle changes to medical interventions.
  • Fibroid uterus: It contains non-cancerous growths called fibroids. These can cause symptoms like heavy menstrual bleeding and pelvic pain. Treatment options range from medication to surgery.
  • Brain aneurysm: It is a weak, bulging area in an artery supplying blood to the brain. It poses a risk of rupture, leading to potentially life-threatening bleeding.
  • Osteoarthritis of the knee: It is a degenerative joint condition marked by the breakdown of cartilage, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. Treatment includes medication, exercise, and sometimes surgery.
  • Peripheral artery disease: PAD is a circulatory disorder resulting from narrowed arteries, reducing blood flow to limbs. It causes symptoms like leg pain and increases the risk of complications.

Top procedures performed by our specialist:

  • Lower limb angioplasty: It is a minimally invasive procedure to open narrowed or blocked arteries, restoring blood flow. It's crucial in preventing amputations in individuals with severe peripheral artery disease.
  • Percutaneous Transhepatic Biliary Drainage (PTBD): It involves inserting a tube to drain bile from the liver. Stenting may follow, ensuring proper bile flow, often used for obstructed bile ducts.
  • Transarterial chemoembolization:  TACE is an Interventional Radiology procedure used to treat liver cancer. It involves injecting chemotherapy drugs directly into the tumor-feeding arteries and blocking their blood supply.
  • Transarterial Radioembolization (TARE): It is also known as selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT), is an innovative and highly effective Interventional Radiology technique utilized in the treatment of liver cancer. This groundbreaking procedure has emerged as a significant advancement in the field of oncology, offering new hope to patients diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or metastatic liver tumors.
  • Biopsy: A biopsy is a medical procedure where a small sample of tissue or cells is taken from the body for examination. This process is designed to minimize discomfort and ensure safety for the patient. It's an essential diagnostic tool in medicine.

FAQ

Interventional Radiology is a medical subspecialty that uses image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat various conditions inside the body. It involves the use of minimally invasive techniques to access and treat organs and tissues.

Interventional Radiology can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including blocked blood vessels, aneurysms, tumors, uterine fibroids, varicose veins, kidney and liver diseases, and more. It is also used for certain biopsies and drainages.

Common procedures in Interventional Radiology include angioplasty and stenting (to open narrowed or blocked blood vessels), embolization (blocking blood flow to tumors or aneurysms), radiofrequency ablation (for tumor treatment), and catheter-directed therapies, among others.

>Interventional Radiology is minimally invasive, meaning it often involves smaller incisions, less pain, and shorter recovery times compared to traditional open surgery. Many procedures are performed using tiny instruments guided by imaging technology.

While Interventional Radiology offers many benefits, not all patients or conditions are suitable for this approach. The decision depends on the specific diagnosis, location of the problem, and the patient's overall health. A skilled interventional radiologist can determine the best course of action.
