Dr. Sean O'Brien was born and raised in New York City, and attended college and medical school in upstate New York, graduating from the University of Buffalo School of Medicine in 1986. He trained as an interventional radiologist at the University of Miami, and has been in private practice for over 22 years, working in major medical centers in Miami, Milwaukee and Atlanta. He has been the section head of Interventional Radiology at EJGH since 2008. "As an interventional radiologist, I'm continually excited about the potential of using cutting-edge technology to perform minimally invasive procedures. We offer patients safer alternatives to surgery in many instances, with quicker recovery time," notes O'Brien.
