Interventional

Detachable coil embolization treats aneurysms and other blood vessel malformations in the brain and other parts of the body, alleviating much of the danger presented by aneurysms. A catheter is inserted into an artery in the leg then maneuvered through the body to the aneurysm's position. Soft detachable coils are inserted through the catheter into the aneurysm. The body responds by forming a blood clot around the coil blocking off the aneurysm. Coils can be used either to block blood flow to the affected area or to fill the aneurysm or fistula, thus preventing a rupture. This procedure is effective in prolonging life and relieving symptoms.

Scott B. Schuber, M.D.

Interventional Radiology Fellowship

I enjoy the intellectual challenge of evaluating, diagnosing, and often treating a wide variety of disease processes. Interventional Radiology provides ample opportunities to perform hands-on procedures, thus enabling the practitioner to take a more active role in patient management and outcome.

Uterine Fibroid Embolization has developed into an excellent alternative to hysterectomy in women with symptomatic uterine fibroids. UFE is less invasive, uses conscious sedation and involves significantly less post-procedure recovery. The vast majority of patients receive complete or near-complete symptom relief.

J. Michael Barraza, Jr., MD

Interventional Radiology as a specialty remains inextricably anchored to the forefront of modern medicine, with an established track record of delivering innovative solutions to complex medical issues across virtually all organ systems. In caring for patients, we offer a glimpse at the future of medicine, with minimally invasive interventions tailored to individual patients, utilizing cutting edge technology, and state-of-the-art image guidance. I value working alongside physicians of all specialties to identify solutions for each unique patient, and am grateful for the opportunity to apply my expertise to the care of patients in the Baton Rouge community.

Ryan N. Majoria, M.D.

It takes real dedication to be able to offer modern interventional services because they're 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It requires a great team effort, and that's one of the greatest qualities of our interventional team at Our Lady of the Lake. We have to know about all disease processes because radiology is such a broad-spectrum specialty. I particularly enjoy performing the therapeutic procedures in interventional radiology, such as Yttrium-90 radioembolization for liver cancer, because we can really make an impact on our patient's quality of life and survival.
