During Your Procedure
The IR procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis or require only a short hospital stay. General anesthesia is usually not required. Risk, pain and recovery time for the patient are often significantly reduced. The procedures are typically performed using needles and narrow tubes (catheters); this prevents large incisions into the body as in traditional surgery.
