Matthew P. Schenker, MD Division Chief, Angiography and Interventional Radiology
Interventional Radiology is a specialty which treats major and minor diseases using minimally invasive techniques. Via a pinhole incision, interventional radiologists can use needles and catheters to treat various conditions with imaging guidance. Interventional radiology procedures are less invasive than traditional surgeries, allow for faster recovery, and can often be performed in the outpatient setting.
We are deeply committed to improving the health and quality of life of our patients by providing compassionate care of the highest standard within an environment that respects the rights and dignity of each and every patient. Our multidisciplinary team will accomplish this in the most efficient manner by utilizing the fundamentals of clinical and academic excellence in the practice of cardiovascular and interventional radiology.
Our vision is to establish the Division of Angiography and Interventional Radiology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital as one of the best in the country.
We will achieve this goal by addressing four areas:
Clinical Excellence We will provide state of the art care to our patients that will be delivered in a compassionate and caring manner.
Service Excellence By working as a team, we will streamline the operational aspects of our division making us more efficient and cost-effective.
Academic Excellence We will explore the forefronts of our specialty by the ethical practice of both basic and clinical investigations.
Teaching Excellence We will train future leaders in our field.
