Dr. Akman performs a variety of minimally invasive procedures. He has specific interest in complex IVC filter removals, interventional oncology, deep venous thrombosis, and hepatobiliary intervention.

Dr. Akman is a leading expert in complex IVC filter retrieval and IVC filter related complications.  In addition to standard IVC filter retrievals, he removes many types of filters including those designated as permanent devices.  He has removed filters which have been in place as long as 15 years as well as those which are severely tilted, embedded or fractured. He serves as an adviser to other physicians on complex techniques including laser sheath and forceps assisted retrieval.  In addition to locally based patients, Dr. Akman draws filter patients from national and international locations.

Within interventional oncology, Dr. Akman performs thermal ablation of lung, liver, and kidney tumors.  He performs chemoembolization and radioembolization (Yttrium-90) on primary liver cancer and metastatic liver disease.
