Interventional radiologists are board certified medical doctors with advanced specialty training in minimally invasive image guided surgery using state of the art X-ray, MRI, CT and Ultrasound to help guide tiny wires and catheters the size of a spaghetti noodle into arteries, veins, bile ducts and tubes in the kidney which help drain urine. We help to open diseased vessels with balloons, stents and chemicals. We help close off bleeding vessels with particles or metal coils which close off the bleeding vessel. Minimally invasive surgery is often performed in an outpatient setting where you can go home the same day providing you with faster healing in the comfort of your home environment.
'After my pharmacist suggested I get a thermogram, I met with Dr. Stryker to address treatment for my tumor. She changed my whole outlook on the battle with cancer, assuring me that she was now a part of my team. After chemoembolization, immunoembolization and cryoablation with immunotherapy, we have seen success!! I am blessed to have this doctor, not just on my team, but in my life! ' Nicole B., October 2018
