Interventional Radiology

For Physicians

 

Interventional Radiology Clinic

The Stanford Interventional Radiology Clinic provides the appropriate venue for the physicians to evaluate the patient and coordinate the services needed to deliver the highest quality of care. Not only does it serve as a focal point for referrals but also guarantees optimal continuity of care.

Patients that are being considered for a complex procedure or patients with significant medical problems are evaluated in our clinic prior to scheduling them for the procedure. The visit allows the physician to analyze the signs and symptoms, review appropriate imaging studies, request additional exams if needed, along with the referring physician and formulate an appropriate treatment plan for the patient. Appropriate risks, benefits and alternative plans are discussed in detail with the patient.

The IR clinic also facilitates optimal continuity of care. Following a major procedure, all patients will be scheduled for a follow-up appointment prior to their discharge from the hospital. The first follow-up visit is usually within a week of the procedure, in order to address any procedure related complications and provides optimal post-op care. Additional follow-up visits are scheduled based on the disease process and services are rendered until the desired results are achieved.
