Percutaneous Endoluminal Non-vascular Therapy

There are many diagnostic and therapeutic treatments that can be performed on the organs with the use of interventional radiology to eliminate the need of exposing the organs. Percutaneous endoluminal non-vascular therapies involve accessing the organs with minimally invasive, needle-based procedures. At the Doctors Hospital, we offer a number of treatments:

  • Draining of abscess, painful cysts and abnormal fluid collections
  • Thoracentesis, paracentesis and pleurodesis
  • Biopsies of thyroid, solid organ, soft tissue and bone mass/lesions
  • Transjugular liver biopsy with hemodynamic measurements
  • Treatment of bile duct and gallbladder disease through the placement of drainage tubes, cholangioplasty, metallic stents and stone extraction
  • Urinary interventions such as percutaneous nephrostomy, nephroureteral or internal ureteral stent placement
  • Access for surgical nephrolithotomy or laser lithotripsy
  • Gastrostomy or gastrojejunostomy feeding tubes

As the region's leading provider of healthcare, Columbus Regional Health has touched the lives of most of the children and adults in this region through its comprehensive network of services. Located in the West Georgia city of Columbus, Columbus Regional was established in 1986 as a not-for-profit health services organization, but its roots can be traced back to 1836 when the local hospital was a small wooden building on the banks of the Chattahoochee River.
