Exploring Our Comprehensive Interventional Services at GLMI in Western New York

Great Lakes Medical Imaging (GLMI) is proud to announce an expansion of our interventional radiology services. We are now offering a suite of advanced treatments that provide minimally invasive alternatives to surgery for a variety of conditions. This expansion means enhanced care for our patients in Buffalo and Western New York, covering everything from lumbar punctures to locoregional liver therapies.

Targeted Treatments for Complex Conditions

At GLMI, we understand that every patient's needs are unique. Our expanded services offer precise, targeted treatments tailored to individual conditions, utilizing the latest technology in interventional radiology.

Lumbar Punctures and Pain Management

Lumbar punctures are essential for diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the spinal cord and brain. With precision and care, our specialists perform these procedures to obtain cerebrospinal fluid or administer medications directly into the spinal canal. Our interventional pain management also includes advanced treatments like kyphoplasty, which can relieve pain and restore mobility in patients with spinal fractures.

Vascular Health and Limb Preservation

For those suffering from Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and related conditions like peripheral ulcers, our vascular interventions can be life-changing. GLMI's approach can help restore circulation, promote healing of ulcers, and manage acute and chronic Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT). For conditions like Venous Insufficiency/Reflux and May-Thurner Disease, our endovascular therapies aim to improve blood flow and relieve symptoms.

Cutting-Edge Embolization Procedures

Our embolization services, including Prostate Artery Embolization, Uterine Fibroid Embolization, Varicocele Embolization, and Pelvic Congestion Embolization, provide targeted treatments that can reduce symptoms and eliminate the need for surgical intervention.

Comprehensive Vascular Access and Management

GLMI offers complete vascular access services, such as PICC line and port insertions, essential for long-term treatments like chemotherapy. We also specialize in dialysis interventions, including fistula management, to ensure that patients with kidney failure have reliable access for their lifesaving treatments.

Organ-Specific Therapies for Liver and Kidney

Our locoregional liver therapies, including Chemoembolization, Radioembolization, and Ablation, offer hope to patients with liver tumors, providing targeted cancer treatment with fewer systemic effects. Similarly, our Thermal Ablation of Renal Masses allows for the treatment of kidney tumors without traditional surgery.

Management of Tubes and Drains

For patients requiring long-term nutritional support or drainage, GLMI manages the placement and care of feeding tubes, nephrostomy tubes, biliary tubes, and various drains. These procedures are performed with patient comfort and safety as the utmost priorities.

Diagnostic and Interventional Biopsy Services

Our Percutaneous Biopsy and Aspiration services offer minimally invasive options for diagnosing conditions without the need for open surgery. We also provide IVC Filter insertion and removal, a procedure that helps prevent pulmonary embolism in at-risk patients.
