Professor of Radiology Ziv Haskal, MD, was named to Newsweek’s “Top Cancer Doctors 2015” listing for his expertise in Uterine Fibroid Embolization, Vascular Malformations, and Liver Cancer/Chemoembolization. Sixteen other University of Virginia Cancer Center physicians were named to Newsweek’s “Top Cancer Doctors 2015” listing.
Dr. Haskal’s published and continuing research interests are widespread, spanning dialysis, portal hypertension, peripheral arterial and venous disease, deep vein thrombosis and interventional oncology. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Interventional and Vascular Radiology.
