Interventional Oncology is a new, patient-friendly approach to diagnosing and treating cancer. Jupiter Medical Center’s Interventional Radiologists utilize minimally-invasive techniques that result in fewer hospital stays, less pain and faster recovery.
Interventional radiologists specialize in minimally-invasive, targeted treatments. They provide in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available, coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties. These physicians use image guidance to non-surgically treat a variety of diseases resulting in excellent outcomes with less pain and faster recover compared to open surgery. Many conditions that once required traditional open surgery can now be treated non-surgically.
Interventional Radiologists often use imaging techniques to locate a potentially cancerous tumor. A fine needle is used to obtain a tissue sample, which a pathologist examines to determine if there is a cancer. Patients usually return home the same day. Depending on the location, doctors at Jupiter Medical Center will choose from a powerful array of new anti-cancer weapons for treatment.
