Focus on Interventional Radiology: the key success for innovative treatment
GENOLIER PATIENT SERVICES focuses on Interventional Radiology, a recent medical discipline, whose treatments have earned respect thanks to their efficiency and astonishing safety.
Over the last few years, this discipline has played an increasingly important role within the most advanced techniques in the medical field.
In order to remain at the cutting edge of technology, Clinique de Genolier in Genolier and Clinique de Montchoisi in Lausanne are not only equipped with the latest high-tech imaging devices but are also proud to have amongst very few experts in this field, two of the best specialists in Switzerland, Dr Pierre Bize and Dr Stefano Binaghi, both FMH Swiss board certified Radiology.
At the crossroads between radiology, imaging, surgery, oncology and urology, Interventional Radiology relies on medical imaging such as sonography, scans or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), to administer specific and localized treatments to patients.
For example, several previously incurable tumoral pathologies can now be treated using the assistance of Interventional Radiology techniques.
Regardless of tumor type, this technique enables radioactive particles to be injected directly into a tumor to deliver radiation therapy from within. Known as radio-embolization, this procedure is very well tolerated by patients.
From a patient’s perspective, Interventional Radiology offers many benefits such as reduced postoperative pain and bleeding as well as a reduced risk of infection. Furthermore, this minimally invasive surgery with smaller scars, also means hospitals stays are shorter.
Clinique de Genolier and Clinique de Montchoisi are committed to finding the best specialists, the most advanced medical procedures and maintaining ongoing investment in state-of-the-art medical equipment.
