Radial Artery Puncture Procedure – first in WA

· Uncategorized · No Comments

Congratulations to our very own Dr Sanjay Nadkarni who on Friday, April 6 became the first ever Interventional Radiologist in Western Australia to perform a radial artery puncture procedure as part of a uterine artery embolisation.

Uterine fibroids are extremely common in women and if left untreated can continue to grow in size and number.

This procedure allows patients to sit up and even walk almost immediately and in most cases the patient will be home the same day. Dr Nadkarni asked us to give a shout out to the interventional radiology department at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital who have been offering world class care to patients for 25 years.
