Interventional Radiology Division

The Division of Interventional Radiology (IR) at the University of Arizona functions much like a surgical subspecialty team offering outpatient consultations, pre/post-visit coordination and inpatient care. Use of the latest, cutting-edge technologies and facilities allow the team to perform the entire range of vascular and nonvascular procedures to treat an exceptionally wide range of diseases and conditions in adult and pediatric patients. The IR service performs over 2,000 minimally invasive procedures a year that reduce the need for open surgery and allow for shorter patient recovery times.

Our expertly-trained team of interventional radiologists and staff, use state-of-the-art equipment to provide safe, effective, and compassionate care to all patients.
