About Us

Here, you will find information about our fascinating new specialty in the Arab World, Interventional Radiology! Interventional Radiology was founded by a handful of physicians who saw the power of merging imaging with minimal surgery.

It is now available throughout most of the Arab Countries from the Arabian Gulf to the Atlantic Ocean. It is our goal to spread its knowledge and practice in our Arab World and make it available to every patient who can benefit from this “keyhole surgery”.

Interventional radiologists are medical doctors who, after finishing medical school, completed an internship and full training in diagnostic radiology, later joining a sub-specialty program in interventional radiology.

Interventional radiologists use image guidance and tiny medical instruments to treat many medical conditions without surgery, with minimal discomfort and minimal interruption of the patient's life style. It is the “simple answer” to many difficult medical problems.
