Vascular and interventional radiology allows for a host of new diagnostic and treatment options designed to minimize physical trauma to the patient, thereby reducing pain, recovery time, infection rates and the overall costs associated with surgery and hospital length of stay.

Advances in technology and improvements in catheterization techniques allow targeted therapies to be delivered directly to the source of disease— guided by state-of-the-art medical imaging—in real-time. And while technology is driving our field forward, the commitment to undergoing additional training and developing the expertise required to perform these services is the real value that our doctors bring to the greater Lakeland community.

As a result, new treatments within this discipline are added every year, and we invite you to check back with us frequently to learn about new services, read clinical studies that support their use, and find additional information that can be beneficial to you and your doctor.
