PIONEERING CARE

The Interventional Radiology team provides essential services that are integrated into the care pathway of children in almost all other service lines.  As such we offer emergency care (i.e. to the emergency department, neonatal intensive care unit, pediatric intensive care unit), urgent care (i.e. to transplant, hematology-oncology, cardiology and gastroenterology teams), and routine elective care (i.e. to dermatology, neurology, rheumatology, ENT and endocrinology teams). We work closely with our anesthesiology colleagues to provide 24/7 care, all year round, for children from the time they are born, when they can be small as 500g, all the way through to when they become adults. Our goal is to provide the highest quality care to children using minimally invasive techniques that help to support the physical and mental wellbeing of a child and family throughout their journey through our healthcare system.
