Excellent outcomes and dedicated vascular care. Ever closer to you.
At Vascular Interventions of Tampa in Temple Terrace, Florida, we specialize in minimally invasive procedures for dialysis access management and treatment for vascular conditions, including uterine fibroids and varicoceles. Our board-certified physicians use the latest image-guided technologies and provide safe, effective and individualized care in a comfortable outpatient setting. Our approach to vascular care is a commitment to our patients and the referring physicians of the Tampa Bay community to offer an exceptional patient experience and excellent outcomes through advanced treatment options.
What once required surgery with large surgical incisions and prolonged recovery periods can now be accomplished in our state-of-the-art outpatient center with minimal discomfort and a quicker return to your daily activities. The minimally invasive techniques used by our interventional radiologist and vascular surgeons replace open surgical procedures with no large incisions, less risk, reduced pain and shorter recovery time for patients.
Our board-certified medical director, Warren Krackov, MD, is an interventional radiologist and specializes in providing critical maintenance, management and treatment of dialysis access, uterine fibroid embolization, varicocele embolization, and more. Dr. Krackov is specifically known for using the transradial approach to uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), a safe and effective alternative that uses the radial artery in the wrist instead of the femoral artery in the groin. Dr. Krackov is a pioneer in offering and treating his patients with this more accessible and comfortable approach that delivers an improved experience with fewer complications compared to the traditional transfemoral approach to UFE. “The transradial access is a way for us to perform the uterine fibroid embolization procedure in an even less invasive way,” says Dr. Krackov. “It’s very comfortable. It’s very easy to recover from. It’s very well tolerated. So we’ve taken essentially a minimally invasive procedure and made it less invasive… about as least invasive as you can get.”
Dr. Krackov and our highly trained clinical team are dedicated to delivering far more to our patients, their families, and the Tampa Bay community. We believe that our patients should get the care they need, when they need it. We bring our full range of medical capabilities to every patient, every visit. We are there for our patients every step of their journey.
Vascular care has evolved. It’s about choices.
People living with vascular conditions don’t want overnight stays in the hospital, lengthy recovery periods and scheduling issues. They want to return to their daily lives quickly. We deliver a different healthcare experience; one that is invested in people, communication and best-in-class care.
At Vascular Interventions of Tampa, we are committed to superior service and delivering far more. Our patients can expect:
Prompt appointments For dialysis access management patients, Vascular Interventions of Tampa offers same day/next day appointments when at all possible, allowing you to return to dialysis quickly.
