Our doctors specialize in vascular & interventional procedures. Their capabilities span the diagnosis and treatment of diseases concerning practically every organ system in the body.

Their experience and training help them facilitate procedures, such as:

  • Chemoport/Chestport
    Chemotherapy medications are administered to you using a specialized needle that fits into your chemoport or chestport. A port is a small disk that is placed just under the skin, allowing for easy access for your medicine.
  • Paracentesis
    Paracentesis is when a catheter or needle is inserted into the peritoneal cavity. This is used to gather obtain ascetic fluid, for both therapeutic and diagnostic reasons.
  • PICC Line
    A PICC Line is a peripherally inserted central catheter. This is inserted into the vein of a patient’s neck, leg or arm. This is used for long-term intravenous medications, nutrition, blood drawing, and antibiotics.
  • Temporary Dialysis Catheters
    Through the use of a dialysis catheter, we are able to exchange blood back and forth from a hemodialysis machine. This procedure is only temporary until the patient’s kidneys are able to repair themselves and restore their functionality.
  • Thoracentesis
    Thoracentesis is an invasive procedure that is used to remove air and fluid that is in the pleural space. This is done for both therapeutic and diagnostic reasons.
  • Tunneled Dialysis Catheters
    A tunneled dialysis catheter is a catheter that has been inserted into a vein for long-term purposes. These specialized catheters are dual-lumen. There is an arterial port that allows blood to flow from the body and a venous port that allows the blood to return once it has already flown into the dialysate.
  • Urinary Bladder Catheterization
    This procedure is used to drain the urinary bladder freely through the use of a catheter. The urinary bladder catheterization procedure is done for both therapeutic and diagnostic reasons such as prostate problems (BPH), urethral problems, urinary retention, and overactive bladder.
  • Venograms
    A venogram is a procedure that allows us to exam your veins through the use of an x-ray. Since veins cannot be seen normally through an x-ray, a special dye called contrast dye is injected into the veins. This allows the veins to become visible on x-ray.
