At MultiCare Deaconess Hospital, the interventional radiology services are provided by an experienced group of Radia physicians with more than 50 years of collective experience. Every member of the team is fellowship trained and takes a keen interest in providing the highest quality care for their patients. The interventional radiologists are considered a part of your care team and are always available to answer your referring doctors questions and provide clinical consults. Most procedures can be scheduled with just a few days lead time.

In 2013, Deaconess Hospital installed an advanced interventional radiology system that helps doctors with the treatment of a variety of medical conditions, including heart and blood vessel diseases, cancers, bone fractures and other conditions, without major surgery. The new system allows interventional radiologists, pain specialists, vascular surgeons and cardiologists on Deaconess’ medical staff to provide effective treatment with less risk and discomfort and shorter recovery times.
