Igor Latich, MD, is an interventional radiologist focused on helping patients—particularly those with cancer—have less pain, improved mobility, and a better quality of life.
Dr. Latich specializes in the treatment of degenerative and tumor-related musculoskeletal and spine disease with a particular focus on pain management.
“My primary focus is clinical care and development of new service lines within interventional radiology, such as orthopaedic interventions, endoscopic-guided interventions and laser-assisted biliary stone management, and improvement to existing pain and palliative service lines,” he says. “I enjoy how my job allows me to interact with patients while providing minimally invasive treatments for complex disease processes. I tell patients I will never give up on them.”
His research interests span the world of interventional orthopaedics (development of novel percutaneous methods for acetabular stabilization in metastatic disease), biliary interventions (development of solutions for percutaneous sclerosis of the gallbladder mucosa in non-operative patients with cholecystitis), and quality improvement (development of anti-coagulation guidelines to rationalize the use of reversal agents).
Dr. Latich is actively involved in diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology trainee and medical student education and serves on the medical school admissions committee.
