Competence Center for
Interventional Radiology and Microtherapy
The Competence Center for Microtherapy at the Wiener Privatklinik offers image-guided and minimally invasive therapy options for treating diseases of various organs or body parts.
In recent years, therapy has rapidly evolved from open surgery (major surgery) to minimally invasive surgical procedures. This resulted in the emergence of the new field of microtherapy. Microtherapy involves the use of instruments like needles, catheters and tubes with the help of image-guidance by x-rays, computer tomography and ultrasound precisely to specific parts of the body, to avoid injuring vital anatomical structures like nerves, vessels or organs. For this, only a small pinprick under local anesthesia is necessary. The advantages of this treatment are various and range from the avoidance of a general anesthesia, minimal risk of infection and complication, no actual scarring and clearly reduced post-operative pain, to a generally shorter hospital stay and a more rapid recovery.
In the Competence Center for Microtherapy, patients are attended by the best specialists in the fields of general medicine, surgery, dermatology, vascular surgery, gynecology, internal medicine (angiology, hepatology, oncology), neurosurgery, neurology, plastic surgery, physical medicine, orthopedics and trauma surgery.
