An Innovative Alternative To Surgery
Radiology technologies such as X-ray and ultrasound have been used for many years to identify medical problems. Today, these technologies are increasingly used for treatment as well as diagnosis, through the practice of interventional radiology (also known as angiography) a medical specialty in which X-ray and ultrasound technologies are used to guide catheters and other tiny instruments into arteries and other parts of the body to treat conditions that once required surgery.
Glens Falls Hospital added this innovative treatment option to its array of patient services in the mid-1990s, recruiting interventional radiologist Dr. Richard Dimick to oversee the creation and serve as Medical Director of our $1.2 million Interventional Radiology Lab. Today, Dr. Dimick is joined by fellow interventional radiologists Dr. Marc Meacham and Dr. David Markowitz. All three doctors practice with Adirondack Radiology Associates.
In recent years, Drs. Dimick and Meacham have used interventional radiology to unclog arteries, kill tumors, stop excessive post-partum bleeding and treat such diverse ailments as persistent nosebleeds and a gunshot wound to the kidney.
