Interventional Radiology- Leaders in Minimally Invasive Image-Guided Therapies

The benefits of minimally invasive therapy can include:

  • Small or no incisions
  • Less pain
  • Low risk of infection
  • Short hospital stay
  • Quick recovery time
  • Less scarring
  • Reduced blood loss

 

Our nationally recognised interventional radiologist within the Assunta Hospital has extensive experience and success using minimally invasive therapies to treat patients with a wide variety cancer and non-cancer related disorders.

Thus at Assunta we are not just offering technology as a solution to your medical problems but rather we are constantly working on integrating a range of innovative non-invasive or minimally invasive treatments into your overall care plan. It must be borne in mind that other invasive procedures, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and other medical procedures will be necessary in along the course of your treatment in an integrated care plan for you as your condition and treatments progress

We hope you can benefit from the medical care integrated with available advanced medical technologies
