Overview

Dr. Vo has a service oriented viewpoint. This stems from his father who was in the military. As director of the pediatric vascular and interventional radiology (IR) program the unifying theme for our team is service. Providing the best care and experience to our patients and their families is a primary goal. Frequently, improved care arises from less invasive options. In the pediatric interventional radiology service we specialize in using imaging guidance to precisely localize and deliver minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment solutions. This can lead to more rapid recovery and return to normal activity through performance of a less invasive technique. IR techniques can also reduce systemic effects and risks by directly localizing and instilling medications and/or devices at a precise location for treatment.

We understand that an illness in a child is a stressful situation and providing the best care is a team effort. We collaborate with all the specialists caring for the child and team up to devise the ideal care plan. We in the pediatric interventional radiology service are thankful to be a part of a tremendous and gifted team here at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
