Philosophy of Care
Interventional radiology is at the forefront of medicine, offering effective targeted minimally invasive treatments for a wide variety of complex medical conditions using cutting edge technology. As an interventional radiologist I strive to provide collaborative multidisciplinary care in concert with you and the other providers on your healthcare team to arrive at the best treatment plan for you. I pledge to provide high quality, compassionate, and just care for each and every one of my patients.
Dr. Shah performs image-guided minimally invasive diagnostic and invasive procedures for management of a wide spectrum of adult conditions. His clinical expertise includes targeted cancer therapies such as trans arterial chemoembolization and radioembolization of liver tumors and percutaneous ablation of liver, kidney, and lung tumors. He also specializes in treatment of complex hepatobiliary disease, hemodialysis access dysfunction, and genitourinary conditions including uterine fibroids and varicoceles. Dr. Shah also treats patients with symptomatic peripheral arterial disease as well as those with acute and chronic venous disease.
Dr. Shah’s academic interests include medical education and quality improvement.
