Who We Are

Upper Peninsula Superior Vascular & Interventional Specialists (UPSVIS)  is a private practice that specializes in the field of minimally invasive vascular and interventional medical procedures and treatments.  UPSVIS is operated under the direction of Dr. Christopher Mehall, a vascular & interventional radiologist. Interventional radiologists have specialized training, as well as extensive diagnostic and clinical experience in providing minimally invasive, targeted medical treatments and therapies, often in consultation and partnership with a host of specialists across a broad range of medical specialties. Interventional radiologists use X-rays, MRI and other medical imaging to advance specialized tools to treat the source of the disease internally. As the pioneers of angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, specialized laser-based treatments, coated drug delivery products, as well as many other well-known medical innovations, interventional radiologists have led the way in the minimally invasive treatment of many conditions that once required major surgery.

Our practice encompasses and includes The Vein Clinic of Northern Michigan, the largest and most experienced venous specialty practice in all of Upper Michigan, as well as the Interventional Pain Center (IPC) at UPHS-Marquette, established in partnership with UPHS-Marquette nearly fifteen years ago. The final component of our practice includes the Interventional Institute as our physician continues to perform certain minimally invasive treatments at the hospital and we will occasionally see these patients in consultation at our offices.

Our practice offers over thirty years of experience in providing state-of-the-art minimally invasive options for the treatment for many health problems, utilizing personalized consultation, dedicated imaging techniques, patient education, and follow-up care, to provide simpler alternatives to traditional surgical therapies. This may allow patients to return to everyday activities with minimal recovery time and discomfort — so important to patients in today’s modern world. Of course, not all patients will be candidates for minimally invasive therapies, and consultation with Dr. Mehall may provide patients with peace of mind, knowing that the treatment option they decide upon is best suited for them.
