Vascular and Interventional AssociatesInterventional Radiology

Vascular and Interventional Associates (VIA) was formed in May, 2003, as a new division of Radiology Associates of Northern Kentucky, the largest provider of medical imaging services and interventional radiology services in the Greater Cincinnati area.  It was created to provide an complete clinical service for patients and referring physicians. The doctors are the same caring professionals who have been the area’s leading specialists providing high quality vascular care, spinal care and other IR therapies since 1968.

Interventional Radiology (IR) is an important advance in patient care. VIA physicians specialize in minimally invasive, targeted therapies performed with imaging guidance. IR therapies are easier for the patient because they involve no large incisions, less risk, less pain and shorter recovery times.

Our doctors, who have earned additional board certification in IR, were the first to perform peripheral stenting and angioplasty in the Greater Cincinnati area. We offer a unique combination of state-of-the-art non-invasive diagnostic tools (Doppler Ultrasound, MRA and CTA), and technologically advanced minimally invasive therapy.

VIA physicians can treat many common conditions with minimally invasive therapies, including:

  • Varicose veins
  • Leg pain / vascular disease
  • Aortic aneurysms
  • Back pain
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Chronic Pelvic Pain
  • Male Varicocoeles
  • Targeted Cancer therapies

IR procedures are an advance in medicine that replace traditional, open surgery. They are performed with guidance from radiologic imaging equipment, such as X-ray, CT, and ultrasound. For information on the conditions treated and on the procedures we perform, please see Patient Information.
