UHealth Imaging housed within UMHC combines highly trained interventional radiology physicians with state-of-the-art technology, including NanoKnife™. Often an optimal alternative to surgery for a wide range of conditions, interventional radiology utilizes image-guided, targeted treatments that improve outcomes and shorten recovery, with less risk and pain, compared to traditional surgery.
The UHealth Imaging Interventional Radiology faculty can perform a wide range of procedures, including, but not limited to:
- Dialysis access and interventions
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) management
- Genitourinary diagnosis and interventions
- Interventional oncology
- Liver disease diagnosis and interventions
- Peripheral vascular diagnosis and interventions
- Percutaneous GI interventions
- Spine interventions
- Venous access
Sylvester/UMHC is the first provider in Florida and one of only a handful in the world to offer one of the newest weapons for fighting cancer — NanoKnife™. Our interventional radiology experts use this new minimally invasive treatment to destroy soft-tissue tumors, particularly those that have spread to the liver, kidneys, and lungs. NanoKnife uses a targeted approach to treating small, hard-to-reach tumors at the cellular level. It works by applying electrical energy directly into tumors. This opens the cell walls of the tumor; the cancer cells die; and healthy tissue remains unharmed. Because NanoKnife causes few side effects or scarring, treatments can be repeated if new lesions develop. Download a printable NanoKnife™ Factsheet.
