NYU Interventional Radiology Team

Our clinical team includes interventional radiologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and technologists. Even though the procedures in vascular and interventional radiology are minimally invasive, extreme care is taken to make our patients as comfortable and relaxed as possible and ensure that each procedure is performed in a safe and skillful manner. Our physicians are highly trained with expertise encompassing the full spectrum of vascular and interventional procedures. Our nurses are highly experienced in caring for patients with both simple and complex medical conditions, and they have backgrounds in critical and intensive care. Our technologists are highly trained in operating the complex imaging equipment used in our interventional suites.

NYU Medical Center also offers three ACGME-accredited fellowship positions in vascular and interventional radiology. Learn more about our fellowship program.
