Dr. Aaron Kovaleski moved to Denver in the summer of 2018 after previously working in Richmond, Virginia, and Pensacola, Florida. During his tenure at each location, he developed and grew several Interventional Oncology programs, introducing microwave ablation to the panhandle of Florida, as well as launching Y90 programs at four locations. In Florida, he was part of a vascular surgery group which helped him develop an extensive skillset for treating peripheral vascular disease.
Dr Aaron Kovaleski: Meet the Expert
Dr. Aaron Kovaleski is a board-certified, fellowship-trained Vascular and Interventional Radiologist and leader in his field. He has performed thousands of endovascular interventions and specializes in therapies for uterine fibroids, liver cancer, spinal compression fractures, Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) for leg pain, swelling, and non-healing wounds.
Dr. Kovaleski performs hundreds of uterine artery embolization treatments each year. Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) shrinks leiomyoma, benign growth of smooth muscle tissue, and when on the uterus they are called uterine fibroids. Fibroid surgery options include hysterectomy, but many prefer UFE since it is minimally invasive with a short recovery time.
