“What’s fascinating about interventional radiology is that we can treat nearly every organ in the body through a tiny incision,” says Dr. David LoPresti, a board certified interventional radiologist. By working closely with primary care physicians and specialists, he creates individualized treatment plans for patients to help improve their quality of life.
One of the most impactful procedures for patients is a technique called embolization, which can be used to treat liver cancer, tumors, and most recently enlarged prostates. “Embolization reduces the blood flow in a targeted area, causing the target to shrink, thereby reducing or eliminating the problem,” explains LoPresti. “There is less risk, reduced pain, and a shorter recovery time. That’s what patients want, and what I want for my patients.”
