MCFC’s Patrick Viera opens our new Interventional Radiology facility!
World Cup winner and former Manchester City F.C. midfielder
Patrick Viera has taken time out of his busy schedule toopen our
new Interventional Radiology suite this morning.
Patrick chatted to staff, took a short tour of the facility, and
finally cut the ribbon to mark the start of a new era at the
Radiology department, based in the MRI at the Trust.
The facility will be used for both diagnostic and therapeutic
work including minimally invasive treatments for vascular disease,
insertion and maintenance of access for dialysis, lines for
treatments such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants, and
emergency procedures such as embolization following trauma.
Viera, 36, who played 45 times for City at the end of his career
- which included spells at Arsenal, AC Milan, Juventus, and
Internazionale - is now a football development executive at the
club, a role which involves overseeing the club's youth team
players and promoting community projects.
