Pomerene Hospital is pleased to announce that Interventional Radiology Services will be coming to the hospital one day a week starting May 2016.
Pomerene has partnered with Radiology Associates of Canton to provide these services. The interventional radiology team consists of Syed Zaidi, MD, Norman Crocker, MD and Michael Soehnlen, MD, all members of Radiology Associates of Canton.
Interventional Radiology is a subspecialty of radiology in which minimally invasive procedures are performed using imaging guidance. Some of these procedures are done for purely diagnostic purposes, while others are done for treatment purposes. Although the range of procedures performed by interventional radiologists is broad, the unifying concept behind these therapies is the use of the most modern, least invasive technique available in order to minimize risk to the patient and improve health outcomes.
“Radiology Associates of Canton is proud to provide interventional radiology services at Pomerene Hospital,” stated Dr. Syed Zaidi, President of Radiology Associates of Canton. “Our new arrangement enables us to provide services previously unavailable in Holmes County. Together, we are offering advanced care closer to home.”
CEO Tony Snyder shared in Zaidi’s enthusiasm, echoing his comments.
“Up until this year, our community had to leave the area for interventional radiology procedures. Now, they no longer have to. Offering these less-invasive procedures is just another way we can improve the patient experience and improve health outcomes of those in our community.”
Many new procedures will be performed including joint procedures, biopsy procedures, drainage procedures, intrathecal procedures, IVC filter placements, and PICC lines, among others.
For questions regarding interventional radiology services, please call 330-674-1584, ext. 4124.
