Catherine T. Vu

Philosophy of Care

Interventional Radiology is a thriving field, focused on the principles of delivering treatment and care in a minimally invasive manner. For decades, surgery was the only treatment available for many conditions. Now, many treatments that require open surgery can be performed percutaneously using wires and catheters. Our IR section provides treatments that cover a breadth of minimally invasive vascular and non-vascular procedures. I have an interest in developing a practice dedicated towards women’s health, which includes chronic pelvic pain, deep vein thrombosis, venous insufficiency, and cardiovascular disease.
