Interventional radiology is based on the management of various diseases and conditions using image guidance for patients with cancers, vascular, gastrointestinal, urological, gynaecological, and respiratory diseases as well as other conditions.
Our interventional radiologists specialise in minimally invasive image guided treatments that have proven to be less risky, less painful with better recovery time compared to open surgery.
Our team include Interventional radiologists, radiology nurses, specialist radiographers and health care assistants whose prime objective is to support patients and address their concerns holistically.
Our aim is to provide high quality care and individualised treatment using minimal invasive image guided procedures. We are dedicated to the continuous improvement of our interventional techniques and skills, as well as, the medical management of patients with cardiovascular, gastroenterology, urology, gynaecology and respiratory diseases. We also aspire to become successful trainers for future trainees.
We provide a 24-hour, non-residential, consultant led interventional radiology on-call service at Royal Oldham and North Manchester General Hospitals. The consultant is available via Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS trust switchboard - 0161 624 0420.
Across the trust we have two dedicated rooms with C arm fluoroscopy (Siemens Artis and GE Innova 4100), as well as, a state of the art hybrid suite (GE Discovery IGS 740) that facilitates complex endovascular procedures, which are undertaken in collaboration with vascular surgeons.
Please ensure that all relevant information is included on the referral form. Complex cases should be discussed with an interventional radiologist. An interventionist will vet each request to ensure that the most appropriate procedure is carried out.
