Precision Surgery
Minimally Invasive
Integrated Care


Interventional radiology employs minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat a variety of medical conditions. Here are some common procedures

Angiography is an X-ray examination of the arteries and veins to diagnose blockages and other blood vessel problems. A catheter is inserted into the blood vessel, and a contrast agent (X-ray dye) is injected to make the artery or vein visible in the X-ray.

AVMs (Arteriovenous Malformations)

AVMs are blood vessel abnormalities that can occur in the brain or elsewhere in the body. If untreated, AVMs can rupture, causing life-threatening bleeding. Interventional radiologists treat AVMs by guiding thin catheters to the site and injecting a substance that blocks the blood supply to the affected vessels.

Balloon Angioplasty

This procedure involves opening blocked or narrow arteries and veins using a balloon catheter. It helps restore proper blood flow.

Biliary Drainage (PTBD) and Stenting

A stent (small metal tube) is used to open blocked bile ducts, allowing bile to drain from the liver. This procedure is often performed to treat jaundice.

Internal Bleeding Embolisation

Internal bleeding from an artery can be stopped using a minimally invasive approach, preventing major surgery. This procedure is applicable to any vessel in the body.


This technique delivers cancer-fighting agents directly to the site of a cancer, increasing the drug load at the site for better treatment outcomes. It is commonly used for liver cancers.

High Blood Pressure and Renal Hypertension

Narrowing of the arteries in the kidneys, known as renal hypertension, can be treated with angioplasty and, if necessary, stenting.

Infection and Abscess Drainage

Persistent infections (abscesses) in the body can be drained by inserting a catheter through a small nick in the skin, allowing continuous drainage and avoiding surgery.

Needle Biopsy

Needle biopsies can be performed on almost all lesions for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment planning.

Stent Placement

A stent is a small flexible tube made of metallic wire mesh. It improves blood supply by opening narrow vessels.


This procedure dissolves blood clots by injecting clot-busting drugs directly at the site. It can restore blood flow anywhere in the body, preventing organ damage.

Urinary Tract Obstruction Percutaneous Nephrostomy

The ureter, which carries urine from the kidneys to the bladder, can become blocked by kidney stones or other causes. A catheter is inserted into the blocked kidney to drain urine.

Uterine Arteries Embolization

This procedure stops life-threatening postpartum bleeding and can help shrink fibroids, potentially preventing hysterectomy.

Bronchial Artery Embolisation

This life-saving procedure is used for patients who have blood in the sputum by blocking the bleeding artery.

Vena Cava Filter

A tiny cage-like device inserted in a blood vessel to break up clots, preventing them from reaching the heart or lungs and causing pulmonary embolism.


A pain treatment for fractured vertebrae where medical-grade bone cement is injected into the vertebra for immediate pain relief.

Stroke Mechanical Thrombectomy

This procedure involves removing a blood clot with a thrombus-removing device, restoring blood flow and reducing morbidity compared to intravenous or intra-arterial thrombolysis.

SAH & Aneurysm Treatment

Treating aneurysms with pinhole surgery using coils and stents to prevent rebleed and ensure early recovery.

Carotid Stenosis

Angioplasty and stent placement are used to open the stenosed artery supplying the brain.

Traumatic Vascular Injury

Injured arteries are treated with thrombus aspiration or stenting to restore blood supply.

Pain Management

Facet injections, celiac blocks, and nerve blocks provide significant pain relief compared to oral medications.


Percutaneous embolisation is used to treat tortuous veins in the legs.

Liver Hemangioma Embolisation

This reduces the vascularity of the hemangioma, decreasing blood loss during surgery and pain.

Splenic Embolisation

Blocking the blood supply to an injured spleen prevents open surgery and ensures quick recovery.

Transjugular Liver Biopsy

A liver biopsy done through a vascular route avoids third-space bleeding.

Solitaire Mechanical Thrombectomy for Stroke

This device, introduced by Neuro Foundation, removes clots in blood vessels, preventing distal embolization and reducing morbidity and mortality.

Peripheral Plaque Extractor Device for Diabetes and Ischemic Limb

This device reopens blocked peripheral arteries, restoring blood flow and preventing amputation.

Infusion Catheter for Prolonged Thrombectomy

This special catheter breaks up thrombus in visceral and peripheral arteries, restoring blood flow by infusing thrombolytic drugs over a long duration.
