Minimally Invasive Tests and Procedures
Minimally invasive procedures are performed by Miami Vascular Specialists' interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons through small incisions using imaging techniques to guide small wires or catheters to perform many procedures that traditionally had to be performed with open surgery. Our interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons can often repair blockages, perform biopsies, deliver cancer therapies, repair aneurysms in the brain and throughout the body and repair holes in the heart using the vascular system or other pathways. Minimally invasive techniques are generally easier for the patient because they involve no large incisions, less risk, less pain and shorter recovery times.
