Dr. Juan Carlos Perez Lozada is an Interventional Radiologist practicing in New Haven, CT. Dr. Perez Lozada specializes in minimally invasive, targeted procedures. Interventional radiologists use X-Rays, US, CT, MRIs and other advanced imaging to put catheters in the body in order to treat the source of the disease internally. Many conditions that once required surgery can now have less risk, less pain and fewer invasions when treated by an Interventional Radiologist.

  • Can a contrast dye cause damage?

    Yes, contrast, while very safe and vital for diagnosing and treating some disorders, does have certain risks. A patient may have an allergic reaction to contrast, and if the patient has kidney problems, contrast can exacerbate the problem. It's also important to understand that the contrast for a CT scan and an MRI are not the same. READ MORE

  • Can interventional radiology treatment help people with liver cancer live?

    Yes, interventional radiology procedures including radiofrequency ablation, transarterial chemoembolization, and radioembolization can help treat liver cancer and improve survival rates, particularly when surgery is not an option. These minimally invasive techniques can target and kill malignant tumors while causing minimum damage to healthy surrounding tissue. However, the efficacy of these treatments is determined by a number of factors, including the stage and extent of the cancer, as well as the patient's overall condition. Patients with liver cancer should have a multidisciplinary approach to treatment with a Gastroenterologist/hepatologist (liver doctors), surgeon, and Interventional Radiologist and others involved in patient care. Transplantation of the liver should always be discussed in the appropriate clinical setting. READ MORE

  • Can liver cancer be treated with interventional radiology?

    The short answer is yes, depending on the type, size, and location of the liver cancer we have several ways of treating liver tumors. We can kill the tumor by ablation( burning or freezing the tumor) or via the arteries that feed the tumor blocking them and delivering chemotherapy or radiation directly to the tumor. READ MORE

  • Length of DVT dissolve

    Hi there, usually anticoagulation (blood thinners) like Eliquis is recommended from 3-6 months sometimes longer or less depending on the cause of the DVT. My recommendation is for a Vascular specialist to evaluate the progression of the DVT and compare the imaging of your initial clot with subsequent imaging to assess the progression or resolution of the clot and decide if anticoagulation can be stopped. Chronic clots can damage the valves of your veins and may cause what is called venous insufficiency. Again a doctor who specializes in venous disease can help with DVT follow-up or recommend a hematologist (Doctor who treats blood disorders) to help out with a non diagnosed condition. READ MORE

Get to know Interventional Radiologist Dr. Juan Carlos Perez Lozada, who serves patients throughout the State of Connecticut.

An exceptional interventional radiologist, Dr. Perez Lozada serves as the Medical Director of Vascular and Interventional Radiology and Vice Chair for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at the Yale Radiology department. He is also an Associate Professor of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the Yale School of Medicine. 

His expertise extends across a spectrum of interventional procedures, including uterine fibroid embolization, spine interventions, pain management and nerve blocks, dialysis interventions, and the management of conditions such as deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. His proficiency in interventional oncology further highlights the breadth of his capabilities in addressing complex medical challenges.

Having completed his medical degree at Universidad Nacional Pedro Henríquez Urena in the Dominican Republic in 2001, Dr. Perez Lozada pursued internships at Hospital Central de las Fuerzas Armadas in 2002 and Morehouse School of Medicine/Grady Memorial Hospital in 2007. He further honed his skills through residency in diagnostic radiology at St Vincent’s Medical Center in 2011, and a fellowship in vascular and interventional radiology at Yale New Haven Hospital in 2012.

Subsequent to his education, the doctor attained board certification in diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology from the American Board of Radiology (ABR). The ABR is a not-for-profit physician-led organization that oversees the certification and ongoing professional development of specialists in diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, radiation oncology, and medical physics.

Driven by a passion for the diverse array of medical challenges presented in his daily work, Dr. Perez Lozada emphasizes the importance of the rapidly recoverable nature of his interventions. For him, patient well-being takes precedence. He consistently reassures his patients that their safety is paramount, regardless of the complexity of the procedure or the medical specialty involved. His commitment to delivering the best possible treatment is evident, and he places a strong emphasis on ensuring that patients are well-informed about their options.

In his own words, he expresses his enthusiasm for the expansive scope and constant evolution within the field of interventional radiology. He takes pride in the ability to engage with a broad range of clinical conditions and procedures, underscoring the dynamic and ever-changing nature of his profession. Despite the technical aspects of his role, he remains deeply committed to patient care and actively participates in guiding and counseling individuals during their treatment journey.

Interventional radiology is a medical specialization that involves performing a range of imaging and therapeutic procedures to diagnose and treat many clinical problems. Vascular & interventional radiologists focus on diseases of the blood vessels and lymphatic system, but also treat other conditions such as cancer and infertility. They perform minimally invasive treatments that have less risk, pain, and recovery time compared to open surgery.
