What do I need to bring with me when I see the doctors?
One the day of your office visit you should bring a picture id, your insurance card, and your referral if one is needed. You should also bring any information that your primary care doctor or doctors have give you. Any Ultrasound, CT or MRI results or CDs. These are always helpful for our physician to make a proper diagnosis and avoid a delay in trying to locate these items.
I am having a procedure at a hospital. Where do I check in?
For most procedures, the hospital will contact you to discuss your appointment. They will direct you to visit the admitting department, even for an outpatient procedure, to check in. Usually a volunteer will guide you to the next area. You will go to a holding area where a nurse will gather some basic information and place an IV if needed. Our office staff will be happy to give you detailed instructions if you are unclear. Please call 708-486-2600 during normal business hours.
How long will I need to be in the hospital? Off of work?
Many of the procedures we perform are done on a same day basis. You will go home after a short recovery period (2-4) hours after the procedure. If you are having an angiogram, you may stay longer. This is to ensure the site we entered is fully healed and it is safe for you to go home. Depending on the procedure performed, you will be given detailed instruction on activity and when it is appropriate to return to work. These details will be discussed with you during your consultation with our medical staff. If you have any questions, please call our offices at 708-486-2600 during normal business hours.
What is an Interventional Radiologist?
Interventional Radiologists are board-certified physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments. Our doctors provide the most in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties. They use X-rays, MRI and other imaging to advance a catheter in the body, usually in an artery, to treat at the source of the disease non-surgically. As the inventors of angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, which were first used in the legs to treat peripheral arterial disease, Interventional Radiologist’s pioneered minimally invasive modern medicine.
Today many conditions that once required surgery can be treated nonsurgically by Interventional Radiologists. Interventional Radiology treatments offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to open surgery. All of MIMIT’s Interventional Radiologist’s are fellowship trained and received that training at the most prestigious academic centers in the world.
