M.I.S.S. is a leader in minimally invasive endovascular therapy and vascular surgery.
Interventional radiologists are board-certified physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments. They offer the most in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties. Using X-rays, MRI, CT, ultrasound, and other imaging to advance a catheter in the body, usually in an artery, to treat at the source of the disease non-surgically. As the inventors of angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, which were first used in the legs to treat peripheral arterial disease, interventional radiologists pioneered minimally invasive modern medicine.
Vascular surgeons are board-certified physicians who specialize in diseases of the blood vessels. Vascular surgery is indicated when a patient has vascular disease that cannot be treated by less invasive,nonsurgical treatments.
Today many conditions that once required surgery can be treated nonsurgically by interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons. Interventional radiology treatments offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to open surgery.
