Interventional Radiology

We truly make the impossible possible through a pinhole. This was one of the first state of the art interventional radiology departments to start in the country and over the last 30 years, we have performed several thousand procedures across the body. It was here that procedures like carbon dioxide angiography were introduced for the first time in India. It was also at the Kovai Medical Centre and Hospital that procedures for treating fibroids, aneurysms in the brain and cancer liver were pioneered by Dr. Mathew.

The division of interventional radiology was started in 1991 under the leadership of Dr Mathew Cherian.

Dr Mathew Cherian was the past president of the Indian Society of vascular and interventional radiology and also the recipient of the society’s gold medal for his outstanding contribution in the field. Further, he is also the current president of the society of therapeutic neuro intervention (STNI) and is a Proctor and teacher for many leading companies of the world. He is also the adviser to some of the leading interventional radiology companies.


We have  an exceptionally competent team with Dr Pankaj Mehta who has 25 years of experience in interventional radiology and Dr Santhosh with seven years of experience in the same field. All the three doctors did their Radiology post graduation at JIPMER  and all of them are Gold Medallists from there. They were further trained at leading institutes in India and abroad. Together this team has published more a than hundred papers and are known across the country for both academic and technical excellence.


The brain receives blood supply from four blood vessels; two  in the front and two in the back. When this supply gets blocked the area in the brain which is supplied by this blood vessel stops functioning which presents as a stroke.

Uterine Fibroid Embolisation

Fibroids are the commonest tumours in the uterus. They are known to occur in close to 50% of women. In the vast majority of them, a fibroid does not produce any symptoms and this can be left alone without treatment.

Geniculate artery embolisation (GAE)

GAE is a minimally invasive procedure where the blood vessels supplying the problematic knee joint are selectively slowed down to reduce the pain and resulting limitation of activity.

Prostatic artery embolisation (PAE)

Difficulty in passing urine as you get older is common because of BPH – also called prostate gland enlargement.  Nearly half of men more than 60 years and 90% of those more than 80 years are affected by this condition.
