Treatment Options With an Interventional Radiologist

An Interventional Neuroradiologist goes a step beyond diagnosing.  They also perform minimally invasive procedures using a live X-ray feed.  This allows them to clearly see the specific location being treated.  They then are able to use needles, wires and catheters, through a pin sized hole in the skin to treat the condition.  See our Interventional Radiology page for more information.

Years of Education Make Them The Most Qualified Radiologist

An Interventional Neuroradiologists is one of the most qualified medical professionals to treat conditions related to the head, brain neck and spine. This is because of the extensive amount ofmtraining required. They need a Bachelor’s degree (4 years), typically in a science related field, such as Biology or Chemistry. Then a Medical Degree, (4 years),  an internship (1 year), a Radiology Residency (4 years), a Fellowship in Neuroradiology (1 yr), and a Fwellowship in Interventional Radiology. That works out to be as many as 15 years of learning in order to help patients in need.

What Our Patients Have to Say…

My experience with Dr.Couvillon and his team was very positive. I was nervous and apprehensive about my UFE procedure but Dr.Couvillon and his entire team have the medical knowledge and people skills that put my uneasiness to rest quickly. I would recommend this practice to my friends and family. I’m grateful for such a positive medical experience with this facility

I had an appointment with this facility. I have never, ever, met a more friendly or more personable group of professionals in my long life.  It was a really great medical appointment
