Interventional Radiology is a medical speciality that uses the various imaging and scanning facilities available to offer a range of minimally invasive procedures which in many cases can replace conventional open surgery. Most of the procedures are done under local anaesthetic and can be done either as day case procedures or require only a very short hospital stay with rapid return to normal activities. Dr. Paul Crowe offers a wide range of interventional radiology procedures at several different private hospitals in the Midlands and at the princess Grace Hospital in London.
