Dr Condie“To live each day well is as important as to live long. We make every effort with attention to excellent medical knowledge, procedural skill and focusing on putting people first to cure
disease and manage conditions with as little recovery time as possible to get our patients back to living well.”

Interventional Radiology is a field of medicine that uses minimally invasive techniques and imaging guidance to perform procedures that can replace conventional surgery.

Kern Radiology Interventional Radiologists can treat diseases or conditions in almost any area of medicine. For example, IR specialists can break up clots inside arteries, block off blood vessels that feed tumors, treat varicose veins, deliver cancer treatment directly to a tumor through its own blood supply, drain blocked organs, and perform biopsies—all by way of tiny incisions, into which surgical instruments are navigated, under image guidance, to the target area.

Image guidance includes X-rays, magnetic resonance (MR) and computed tomography (CT) scans and ultrasound.
