Vascular & Interventional Radiology

Virginia Interventional and Vascular Associates (VIVA) is the Fredericksburg area’s only interventional radiology practice. As interventional radiologists (IRs), our doctors combine their skills in reading medical images and performing procedures to guide small instruments such as catheters through blood vessels or other pathways – diagnosing and treating medical conditions percutaneously. We specialize in minimally invasive procedures that help provide patients with alternatives to major surgery. In addition to hospital services, procedures are performed on an outpatient basis at VIVA.

IRs are board certified and fellowship trained in percutaneous interventions using guided imaging. Their specialty is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties and the American Medical Association.
