Dr Homoyoon Mehrzad
Consultant Interventional Radiologist
MBBS MRCS DOHNS FRCR EBIR
"I very much enjoy working here. The atmosphere is very supportive with the entire staff committed to each patient."
I am a consultant interventional radiologist with over four years experience within both the NHS and private sector. I have undertaken a fellowship in liver interventional procedures following my training. I have gained extensive experience in all aspects of liver imaging and procedures with a particular focus on liver cancer and metastasis procedures.
I undertake a full range of diagnostic radiology scans, including ultrasound, MRI scans and CT scans, I also specialise in interventional radiology which offers minimally intensive treatment of a wide range of conditions under imaging guidance. My areas of special expertise are in the delivery of treatments to the liver in regards to liver cancer and metastasis. This includes potentially curative treatments, such as liver ablation and also palliative chemotherapy treatments directly into the liver. The range of procedures I offer includes biliary procedures (PTC), liver biopsy, transarterial chemoembolisation (TACE) selective internal radiotherapy (SIRT), liver cancer and metastasis ablation, transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPSS).
I have performed several hundred procedures and gained a vast amount of experience working closely with a unique group of clinicians in a collaborative manner. I am regularly invited to speak at conferences and meetings both in the UK and abroad.
I aim to deliver the highest quality personalised healthcare to my patients, I aim to deliver this care with the professionalism and compassion that my patients would expect. My approach is patient-centred and I take time to understand each individual's concerns and priorities when helping guide them to the best treatment choice. I am happy to take the time during the consultation, even in cases where minimally invasive interventional radiology treatment may not be an option, I respect the desire to explore all avenues before making a fully informed decision. I work very closely with colleagues and can help guide patients to the appropriate pathway.
