Interventional Radiology

Story of the department

An interventional radiologist is a doctor who specializes in performing minimally invasive image-guided vascular procedures improving the accuracy and minimizing complications. The procedures are performed in cath lab , CT scan room, or using ultrasound guidance as per the disease and organ involved. Today interventional radiologists are an indispensable part of various multidisciplinary teams such as trauma, liver and renal transplant, critical care team, etc and they work closely with all the departments of the hospital. Because of the minimally invasive nature of work the recovery is faster with fewer complication rates and less admission time. Many procedures can be done as daycare with patients returning to routine work the same day.

Cyril Francis

Lisie hospital is having one of the best pediatric department, where I consulted Dr. Edwin Francis, Dr. Annu, Dr. Sunil for my Kid. He is having one the complex heart issues, As of now, 2 Surgeries done. Prior to this, I have gone to another hospital, but they don't have a facility to treat this particular case and they directed me to Lisie Hospital. The cost of the treatment is comparabilly very very cheap with other hospitals. All the nurses there were very friendly and they give special care to each patient especially paediatric OP. I have spent nearly 18 days at Lisie hospital, I would really recommend this hospital for heart-related issue since they are in the top 2 position in India. This hospital is really recommended for the middle class, lower-class families since the cost are really affordable.

Patient Testimonials

I am glad to inform you that we had a very comfortable experience at Lisie Hospital during the cardiac surgery of my nephew, Aahil P, M / 3 yrs, OPD No. 2528461, RBSK Case No.1534. Meanwhile, we take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Sunil G S, Dr. Edwin Francis, other medical team members, Coordinator Ms. Jitha and all staff members of Lisie Hospital for the good care and hospitality provided to us. We had heard a very good opinion about your hospital, so we preferred to come there all the way from Palakkad and things what we heard were very much true. The facilities were indeed of very high class quality. The approach of each and every member of your staff had been very polite, my salute to all. The only problem which we faced was for vehicle parking, which was very difficult sometimes, otherwise, all other things were really very, very fine. My nephew is now doing well and we all are very happy. May Almighty Bless you all. With best wishes

Relative of Cardiac Surgery Patient

My father underwent a major Gastro-Intestinal surgery here recently. The treatment was excellent and they charged a reasonable price too. The staff especially nurses were caring and kind.


I feel there are a group of well-experienced, excellent, and efficient doctors with a patient-friendly approach especially Dr. Paulose Jacob and Dr. Joy Mampilly.


My brother was recently admitted with a severe fever at the General medicine department. Doctors is well experienced and compared to other hospitals the treatment cost and other expenses are very less.
