Interventional Radiologist Leads Piedmont Fayette’s August’s Walk with a Doc
Fayetteville, Ga – X-rays, MRIs, and CT Scans are common radiology tools to diagnose certain health concerns. Interventional radiologists work with your care team to use these high-tech imaging tools, and others, to directly access the part of your body that needs diagnosis or treatment. IR procedures performed at Piedmont Fayette include care for uterine fibroids, arthritis pain, liver cancer, deep vein thrombosis, compression fractures, and more. Morgan Whitmore, M.D., an interventional radiologist with Piedmont South Imaging, practices at Piedmont Fayette Hospital. He will lead Walk with a Doc on Saturday, Aug. 20.
Dr. Whitmore is a board-certified interventional radiologist specializing in diagnostic radiology, vascular and interventional radiology, and interventional oncology. He attended Michigan State University for medical school and completed his residency in diagnostic radiology and his fellowship in vascular and
interventional radiology at Emory University’s School of Medicine.
“Interventional radiology procedures use cutting-edge technology to benefit patients,” said Paige Muh, Manager of Community Relations for Piedmont Fayette. “These procedures are often minimally-invasive, which leads to shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times. Dr. Whitmore will be able to answer any questions our walkers may have about these procedures.”
Walk with a Doc takes place on the third Saturday of every month from June through October. The walks start promptly at 8:30 a.m. at the Peachtree City Farmers Market at Aberdeen Village and go to Battery Park and back (approximately 40 minutes). Walk participants are encouraged to shop with Peachtree City Market vendors after the walk. Walk with a Doc is free, but reservations are required. Email PFHRSVP@piedmont.org to save your spot.
