Interventional Radiology Department procedures include methods of diagnosis and treatment that involve entering the body through small holes with needles without the requirement to make incisions. The patient is relaxed and does not feel pain during the procedure due to local anaesthesia as the region is numbed beforehand, thus ensuring that the patient is comfortable throughout the experience.
During these procedures, which have very low risk and in which the patients do not feel pain, highly technological devices are used. As a result of the procedure, higher quality of life is ensured compared to other surgical methods, time required to stay at the hospital is reduced and most of the time, patients are discharged on the same day or the next day depending on the type of procedure.
