Vascular Interventions of Tampa Welcomes New Medical Director and UFE Specialist, Dr. Warren Krackov

Bringing Established Expertise in Dialysis Access Management and Uterine Fibroid Treatment to Tampa Area Residents

Vascular Interventions of Tampa LogoTemple Terrace, Fla., – Dr. Warren Krackov, an interventional radiologist who specializes in minimally invasive treatment for dialysis access management and other vascular conditions, was recently named medical director of Vascular Interventions of Tampa, a partner of the Azura Vascular Care network of outpatient vascular and ambulatory surgery centers. Dr. Krackov is board certified in diagnostic radiology with a subspecialty certificate in vascular and interventional radiology. Vascular Interventions of Tampa is located in Hillsborough County at 12666 Telecom Drive, Temple Terrace, Florida. The center is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

In his role, Dr. Krackov leads the expansion of Vascular Interventions of Tampa’s established medical services of dialysis access management and vascular access procedures to include non-surgical treatment for uterine fibroids and varicoceles.   Dr. Krackov is a pioneer in offering trans-radial uterine fibroid embolization in the outpatient setting as a safe and effective alternative to surgery for relief of uterine fibroid symptoms. Using the radial artery in the wrist as an access point for this procedure that blocks the blood flow to the fibroids, causing them to shrink and die, the trans-radial approach offers increased comfort, fewer complications and an improved patient experience.

“Trans-radial 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 and it’s very well tolerated. So we’ve taken essentially a minimally invasive procedure and made it less invasive… about the least invasive as you can get.”

Using the latest image-guided technologies and providing safe, effective and individualized care in an outpatient setting, Dr. Krackov and the center’s highly trained clinical team are dedicated to delivering far more to patients, families and referring physicians of the Tampa Bay community.
