Interventional Radiology

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

NanoKnife™

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.
