Biography

Dr. Kelvin K. Hong is an Assistant Professor in the Johns Hopkins Medicine Division of Interventional Radiology within the Department of Radiology and Radiological Science.

A specialist in interventional and vascular radiology, Dr. Hong serves as the Medical Director of the Johns Hopkins Interventional Radiology Center.

Dr. Hong earned his medical degree from South Africa’s University Of Witwatersrand Medical School in Parktown. He completed a radiology residency at Parktown West’s College of Medicine/Radiology, as well as a cardiovascular/interventional radiology fellowship and diagnostic radiology residency at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

His areas of clinical expertise include bone, liver and soft-tissue tumors; chronic total occlusions; claudication; deep venous thrombosis; lung, esophageal and kidney cancer; peripheral arterial/vascular disease; renal artery/vascular disease; uterine fibroid tumors; varicocele; and vascular malformations and venous thromboembolism.

Dr. Hong performs procedures that include radiofrequency ablation for lung, liver, kidney and bone lesions; transcatheter arterial chemoembolization for liver cancer; lower-extremity angioplasty and stenting; visceral angioplasty and stenting; embolization of uterine fibroid tumors; cryoablation for pain control; and percutaneous laser ablation of varicose veins.

American Board of Radiology-certified in both diagnostic and vascular and interventional radiology, Dr. Hong served as editor for the book Percutaneous Tumor Ablation and contributed to Interventional Oncology: Principles and Practice.
