  • Endovascular Revascularization
    This minimally invasive procedure can relieve your lower extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD) symptoms within 1 to 2 hours.

  • Immunoembolization
    If you have been diagnosed with a melanoma of the eye that has spread to the liver, our physicians developed this novel therapy to improve survival in ocular melanoma patients with liver metastases.

  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
    Our specialists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of organs and tissues to help detect many conditions.

  • Percutaneous Cryoablation
    Utilizing imaging technology such as CT, MRI or ultrasound, physicians insert "ablation" needles through your skin into the tumor.

  • Sclerotherapy
    Sclerotherapy is a simple office-based treatment to eliminate varicose or spider veins, in which an irritant drug is injected into the veins with a very tiny needle.

  • Ultrasound
    Ultrasounds vary by condition, but consist of high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body.

  • Vein Closure Surgery
    For painful and unattractive varicose veins, Jefferson vascular surgeons perform the Closure® procedure, a minimally invasive treatment.
