Services Offered by Coastal Vascular & Interventional

Coastal Vascular and Interventional is an innovative group combining the expertise of two specialties -- vascular surgery and interventional radiology. Combining the two specialties offers our patients the best of both worlds when it comes to vascular care. Our vascular surgeons and interventional radiologists have worked closely over the last few years to develop a highly sophisticated endovascular practice. With our combined areas of expertise, our goal is to evaluate every patient with all treatment options in mind, whether a surgical or an endovascular intervention, and thereby to offer the most effective and safest treatment available. This merger is a natural fit and, to our knowledge, the first of its kind in the Southeast United States. We think our patients will benefit tremendously.

Interventional radiology (IR) is a field specializing in image-guided minimally invasive procedures, and has changed the way many vascular diseases are treated. Through our collaborative practice, patients receive the most comprehensive and advanced minimally invasive techniques to treat diseases of the arteries and veins. Our vascular surgery options consider and combine use of the minimally invasive procedures, resulting in the most appropriate care for the patient.

Our interventional radiologists are also active in treating nonvascular disorders with minimally invasive techniques, and are the only IR physicians in the area to have an active clinical practice enhancing patient care.

All of our physicians are board certified in their specialties, have numerous years of experience, and actively participate in some of the latest investigational trials. Our patients are provided with the most advanced medical technology and treatment. Below are some of the procedures that we provide.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive therapy used to eliminate tumors in organs like the liver. A special needle electrode is placed in the tumor under the guidance of an imaging method such as ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) scanning, or magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. A radiofrequency current then is passed through the electrode to heat the tumor tissue near the needle tip and ablate or eliminate it. The heat from radiofrequency energy also closes up small blood vessels, thereby minimizing the risk of bleeding. Radiofrequency ablation generally causes only minimal discomfort and may be done as an outpatient procedure without general anesthesia.
