Article

Dr+Samuels+01.jpgThe February Med School Café lecture will feature Dr. Derek Samuels, assistant professor of radiology at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine and an interventional radiologist with USA Physicians Group.

His lecture, titled “An Overview of Minimally Invasive Treatments,” will take place Feb. 19, 2015, at the USA Faculty Club on USA’s main campus. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m., and the presentation begins at noon.

Today, many conditions that once required surgery can be treated less invasively by interventional radiologists. During the talk, Dr. Samuels will discuss interventional radiology and what it means for patients. Interventional radiology is a medical specialty that uses minimally invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases. Dr. Samuels will include information on these procedures as it relates to the oncology patient, the obstetrics and gynecology patient, and patients with renal failure, among others.

Dr. Samuels earned his medical degree at Eastern Virginia Medical School. He completed both his residency in diagnostic radiology and his fellowship in interventional radiology at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Fla.

The Med School Café lecture and lunch are provided free of charge, but reservations are required. For more information or to make reservations, call Kim Partridge at (251) 460-7770 or e-mail kepartridge@health.southalabama.edu.

Med School Café is a free community lecture series sponsored by the USA Physicians Group. Each month, faculty from the USA College of Medicine share their expertise on a specific medical condition, providing insight on the latest treatment available.
