BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - Vascular interventional radiology (VIR) procedures are advances in medicine that often replace open surgical procedures. VIR endovascular experts specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments performed using imaging guidance techniques to "see" inside the body.
These image guided techniques allow for treatment of a variety of medical disorders without surgery. Patients benefit from decreased risk, pain, and recovery time. Procedures that traditionally required a hospital visit can now be performed in the comfort of an outpatient clinic.
