Memphis Vascular Center (MVC) has launched a new outpatient diagnostic and treatment facility in Memphis, Tennessee, US, to provide care for vascular disease, cancer, and various health conditions.
Specialising in vascular and interventional radiology, MVC’s team of interventional radiologists uses advanced diagnostic imaging equipment to perform minimally invasive treatments.
The outpatient centre addresses a range of conditions, including peripheral arterial disease, varicose veins, liver cancer, uterine fibroids, enlarged prostate, knee pain from osteoarthritis, chronic bleeding haemorrhoids, and spinal compression fractures.
MVC medical director and interventional radiologist Scott Osborne said: “Interventional radiology is rapidly becoming the standard of care for treating certain health issues that once required surgery.
“Thanks to our new centre, patients can be treated in an outpatient setting, where convenience and exceptional care are the priority.
“Other benefits include a lower risk of hospital-acquired infections and lower overall cost.”

All procedures offered are said to be FDA-cleared, virtually pain-free, and will allow patients to return home the same day as their treatment, resuming normal activities shortly.
This approach is claimed to offer a viable and cost-effective alternative to traditional open surgery.
“The solutions that we offer are some of the most highly advanced medical procedures available today,” Osborne added.
“Each year, hundreds of thousands of women undergo hysterectomy or myomectomy to treat their fibroids. However, surgically removing fibroids from the uterus, or removing the uterus itself, is no longer required to treat this condition.”
“With interventional radiology, we block or ‘embolise’ the blood vessels that feed the fibroid. Without a blood supply, the fibroids shrink, and symptoms disappear.
“No open surgery required, no scarring, very little recovery time and lasting results.”
