Interventional Oncology in New Jersey

Minimally-Invasive Solutions Provided by the Vascular Institute at AMI

Interventional Oncology is a subspecialty of interventional radiology and is considered one of the four main specialties involved in comprehensive cancer treatment and treatment of cancer related disorders. The others include medical oncology, surgical oncology, and radiation oncology.

Interventional Oncology is a radiation-based treatment typically used on cancers that cannot be surgically removed or addressed with more traditional forms of systematic chemotherapy. It is often employed by our New Jersey endovascular specialists in tandem with other therapies. Typically, it is an outpatient procedure, at most requiring a one-night stay in the hospital. Interventional Oncology utilizes fine instruments to be able to precisely attack tumors while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected.

It is commonly used to treat:

  • Liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma)
  • Metastatic Liver Cancer (colorectal cancer and others)
  • Kidney cancer (renal cell carcinoma)
  • Lung cancer (bronchogenic carcinoma)
  • Bone cancer (bone metastases from other cancers as well as multiple myeloma)

These cancers can be treated with either arterially directed therapies (chemoembolization) or heat-based therapies (microwave ablation or cryoablation).

In general, these techniques are reserved for patients whose cancer cannot be surgically removed or effectively treated with systemic chemotherapy. However, there are some instances in which the best first line treatment for a given cancer is Interventional Oncology based. These procedures are also frequently used in combination with other therapies provided by other members of the cancer team.

Your First Step

Every patient’s situation is different and requires a personalized medical plan. Once you schedule your appointment at the Vascular Institute, you will undergo an extensive consultation with one of our highly trained interventional radiologists. In addition to standard questioning about your physical and medical history, the specialist may administer additional testing such as blood work or imaging.

During this consultation, your interventional radiologist will explain the treatment options available to you given your history, type and stage of cancer, and other factors. It is important to us that you understand all of your options, including the risks, benefits, and alternative strategies before committing to the next step.
