Interventional Radiology & Technology
By providing images of unprecedented clarity and detail, new breakthrough technologies are providing Interventional Radiologists like Dr. Grubbs with the ability to perform non-invasive treatments that once required open surgeries.
That means no surgical incisions, no stitches, and no scars. Most Interventional Radiology procedures don't require a general anesthesia, are less painful and have fewer risks and complications. And most conditions treated with Interventional Radiology can be done in an outpatient setting, or require hospitalization for only a brief time. That translates to shorter hospital stays - and faster recoveries - than surgical patients experience.
Sarasota Interventional Radiology has made an extraordinary commitment to these technologies, and has on site state-of-the-art equipment including:
- The Phillips Multi-Slice CT Scanner with Fluoroscopy is used
to perform guided procedures such as Biopsies, Plasma
Disc Decompression, and Vertebroplasty.
- The Diamond Brilliance by Phillips 16 inch Angiography Suite
is used in the peripheral vascular and cardiac catheterization
- The SonoSite MicroMaxx is used to help in making complex diagnosis.
