Advanced Technology With A Human Touch – Unparalleled Treatment With An Eye On Patient Cost Savings

Selection of a facility for your procedure is a personal decision, one that you should discuss with your ordering physician but also one that is ultimately yours to make. Whether it’s a biopsy or any interventional procedure, you may have your procedure at the facility of your choice. We promptly report the results of your procedure to your ordering physician to share with you.

At SIR, we have revolutionized minimally invasive surgery in Florida, and we believe that SIR offers many advantages over other diagnostic clinics and even hospitals. SIR’s advantage:

  • Advanced technology to provide the ultimate imaging experience. Our state-of-the-art equipment is carefully selected to maximize patient safety and comfort.
  • Unparalleled diagnosis and treatment using the latest approved minimally invasive procedures rather than traditional open surgery. These procedures offer patients shortened recovery time, fewer risks and complications, and less pain than traditional surgery.
  • Physician expertise and experienced technical staff. Our physicians and technicians are trained in the latest diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. Our board-certified anesthesiologists take care of your individual sedation needs, so you won’t feel or remember a thing about your procedure.
  • Significant cost savings compared to charges at local hospitals. The cost savings of identical procedures done on an outpatient basis at all the local hospitals is four to six times greater than at SIR. For example, your obligation to pay the deductible for a liver biopsy performed at SIR is less than $1000, as compared to $4000 to $6000 at a local hospital. Which deductible would you rather pay!

"I have been in many medical facilities and hospitals in my 82 years, but never have I been treated better than at SIR. Thank you, and your entire staff is to be commended."

Gerald E. Grubbs, MD - Florida’s Leading Interventional Radiologist

A native Tennessean, Gerald E. Grubbs, MD, attended both undergraduate college and medical school in his home state before completing his residency in Diagnostic Radiology at the University of Tennessee. He is board certified by the American Board of Radiology and is currently studying for board certification in Anti-Aging Medicine.

Fascinated with how the field of Interventional Radiology was transforming minimally invasive surgery and its benefits for patients, Dr. Grubbs took a fellowship in Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology at the prominent and prestigious Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute at Baptist Hospital of Miami. There he learned the fundamentals of many procedures he now performs. In 1993, after completing his fellowship, Dr. Grubbs received his Board Certification in Interventional Radiology from the American Board of Radiology. The following year, Dr. Grubbs moved to the Florida Suncoast where he specialized in Diagnostic, Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology.

In 2006, he established his own practice, Sarasota Interventional Radiology (SIR). As a pioneer and one of the first Interventional Radiologists to introduce and perform some of today’s most sophisticated minimally invasive procedures, Dr. Grubbs and SIR proudly offer today’s most cutting-edge treatments for conditions that once required open surgery. Equipped with three procedure rooms and a nine-bed recovery suite, SIR provides nonsurgical treatment along with advanced diagnostic technologies. Dr. Grubbs performs many procedures utilizing SIR’s 128-slice CT, the latest and most advanced CT technology that offers pristine image quality, 3D reconstruction, and ultra-low dose radiation.

In the fall of 2014, Dr. Grubbs opened the RevitaLife Vitality Center of Sarasota, an anti-aging clinic that combines preventative care and cutting-edge technology and provides the latest in aesthetics and regenerative, functional, and metabolic medicine. At RevitaLife, Dr. Grubbs offers customized options for achieving optimal health and function for patients of all ages. https://revitalife.net 941.377.4555.
