Varicocoele and Ovarian Vein Embolisation

New and Innovative IR Procedures:

Prostate Artery Embolisation (PAE) is a modern, innovative and minimally invasive treatment for Benign Prostate Hypertrophy (BPH).

This procedure has been successfully pioneered in Australia by Dr Glen Schlaphoff


Uterine Fibroid Embolisation (UFE)

UFE is an innovative and minimally invasive treatment for Uterine Fibroids.

Uterine fibroids are benign (non-cancerous) tumours of the uterus. They are clinically apparent in up to 25%  of women and, with newer imaging techniques, the true clinical prevalence may be higher (up to 77%). Although most do not cause symptoms, uterine fibroids can cause severe problems for some women who have the condition.
