Texas Center for Interventional Surgery

The Texas Center for Interventional Surgery offers comprehensive interventional radiology services and is designed for patient comfort and convenience.

Our interventional radiologists provide patients minimally invasive, image-guided techniques. They use small catheters or other devices guided by X-ray, ultrasound or computed tomography (CT) imaging to diagnose and treat conditions. These procedures offer patients smaller incisions, no overnight hospital stays, and minimal pain.
