This year's Markham Stouffville Gala Ball raises funds for immediate and critical need of the expansion of the Interventional Radiology (IR) program. At a cost of close to $3 million, this project will enable the progressive methods of the IR team and deliver the best possible patient care to more than one thousand patients every year. Please support the Patient Care Fund and important initiatives like the expansion of our Interventional Radiology program. You will be ensuring the healthcare needs of our community continue to be met close to home, at Markham Stouffville Hospital, today and in the future.

Surgery without Scars Commonly referred to as "surgery without scars", IR uses minimally invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat disease. With the ability to treat nearly every organ system in the body, IR benefits patients across the hospital spectrum including the critical areas of Emergency, Surgery, Urology, Gynecology, Intensive Care and Cancer Care. For the patient, this cutting-edge technique means shorter hospital stays, faster recovery times, less painful procedures and better overall health outcomes.
