Interventional Radiologists can treat a varicocele by embolization to treat infertility and pain. No major incision. No stitches. Home same day.
Prostate embolization is a non-surgical way of treating an enlarged and troublesome prostate by blocking off the arteries that feed the gland and making it shrink. It is performed by an interventional radiologist, rather than a surgeon, and is an alternative to a TURP (trans urethral resection of prostate) operation. PAE was first performed in 2009.
