Andrew Akman, MD, MBA is board certified in both Diagnostic Radiology and Vascular and Interventional Radiology. He received his medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine. Dr. Akman completed his radiology residency at Boston University and fellowship in Interventional Radiology at Johns Hopkins Hospital. A native of Washington, DC, he moved back to the area and began practicing at George Washington University Hospital. He returned to the Johns Hopkins Healthcare system and currently practices at Suburban Hospital, Sibley Hospital, and Johns Hopkins Hospital.
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 an expert in complex IVC filter retrieval and IVC filter related complications. In addition to standard IVC filter retrievals, he removes devices that are severely tilted, embedded or fractured, as well as those designated as permanent devices. 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.
Dr. Akman prides himself on building strong relationships with his patients and practicing patient-centered medicine.
