​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Minimally Invasive Treatment for Complex Conditions

Baylor Scott & White Health provides adult and pediatric ​​patients with a full range of interventional radiology treatments, including sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for heart disease, cancers, uterine fibroids, deep vein thrombosis and more.

Conditions Treated with Interventional Radiology

By using long, thin tubes called catheters inserted through small incisions and guided through the body with advanced imaging technology, interventional radiologists are able to deliver treatment without open surgery. Conditions treated include:

  • Stroke
  • Brain aneurysm
  • Peripheral vascular disease (PVD)
  • Varicose veins
  • Venous ulcers and leg varices
  • Spinal fractures and kyphosis
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Bone, breast, kidney, liver and lung cancer
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Pelvic congestion syndrome

Interventional Radiology Procedures

  • Balloon angioplasty
  • Embolization
  • Thrombolysis
  • Central venous access catheter (CVAC)
  • Endovenous laser treatment
  • Vertebroplasty
  • Kyphopla​​sty
  • Chemoembolization
  • Biliary drainage and stenting
  • Gastrostomy
  • Hemodialysis access maintenance
  • Radiofrequency vertebral augmentation and tumor ablation
  • TIPS (transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt)
  • Fallopian tube catheterization
  • Uterine fibroid embolization
  • Varicocele embolization
  • Inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement and retrieval

These treatments offer less risk, less pain and shorter recovery time for our patients and often deliver the same or better results without surgical risks and long hospital stays.

  • IR technology is patient-friendly
  • Outpatient or brief hospital stays
  • Tiny incisions minimize scarring
  • Less pain and blood loss
  • Quick recovery time
  • Often less expensive than traditional surgery

Our Interventional Radiology Team

Our multi-disciplinary team of specialists is committed to providing quality care and are trained to use advanced techniques to detect and treat disease. Interventional radiology procedures require a collaboration of interventional radiologists on the medical staff, radiology nurses and radiologic technologists all trained to specialize in their field.

Interventional radiologists on the medical staff use their expertise in interpreting X-rays, ultrasound, MRI, CT and other diagnostic imaging studies to understand, visualize, diagnose and treat the full scope of a disease. This method allows the interventional radiologist to map out the procedure and tailor it to your individual needs.​
