Fellowships

The Interventional Radiology section is currently approved for one fellowship position per year. All fellows will work primarily in the main hospital at Galveston.

We have two angiography suites, including a biplane unit, and a new state-of-the-art Siemens biplane angiography unit. We also have rooms for US procedures, minor vascular procedures and also access to a CT room for procedures.

The goal of the program is to produce well trained interventional radiologists able to fulfill duties of clinical practice, research, and teaching. Fellows will actively participate in all aspects of clinical practice including pre-procedural work-ups, consults, and post-procedure follow-ups. Time will be available for electives and research for those interested.

We have close relationships with referring departments including transplant surgery, urology, gastroenterology, ob-gyn, and oncology. The IR clinic is active and supported by two nurse practitioners. We perform the full gamut of vascular and non-vascular interventional procedures. Lists of performed procedures includes (but not limited to):

    1) Comprehensive venous access (PICCs, ports, hickmans, triple lumens, dialysis catheters etc) including placement, removal, and maintenance/troubleshooting.
    2) Comprehensive dialysis access procedures including fistulograms, angioplasty, embolization, and declots.
    3) Aortic, pulmonary, mesenteric, renal, and peripheral angiography, angioplasty, and stent placements. Carbon dioxide angiography.
    4) Arterial and venous thrombolysis
    5) Comprehensive biopsy services (US, CT, and fluoro guided), percutaneous, transjugular
    6) Comprehensive hepatic interventional oncology treatments including chemoembolizations (conventional, drug-eluting beads, bland), radiofrequency ablations, and soon radio-embolizations.
    7) IVC filter placements and retrievals
    8) Uterine artery embolization
