George P. Teitelbaum


George P. Teitelbaum, M.D., FSIR, a board-certified interventional radiologist, Fellow at the Society of Interventional Radiology and interventional neuroradiogist, has more than 39 years of endovascular procedure experience. He graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in biochemistry and earned his M.D. degree from UC San Diego. After serving as a surgery intern at UC San Diego, Dr. Teitelbaum completed his radiology residency at UC Irvine. He subsequently competed fellowships in Interventional Radiology (George Washington University Hospital, Washington, D.C.), Magnetric Resonance Imaging (the Huntington Medical Research Institute, Pasadena, CA), Interventional Neuroradiology (UC San Francisco, San Francisco, CA), and Prostate Embolization (San Jose Hospital, Lisbon, Portugal). He has served on the medical faculties of Thomas Jefferson University, Georgetown University, the Keck/USC School of Medicine, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA).

At USC and CHLA, and subsequently for Providence Southern California, he has been the Director of Interventional Neuroradiology, treating strokes, brain aneurysms, and cerebral vascular malformations. He is a nationally recognized expert in the technique of embolization, i.e., the therapeutic injection of blood vessels with particles, liquid adhesive, or metal coils to control pain, bleeding or organ dysfunction. At the Center for Advanced Cardiovascular Interventions, Dr. Teitelbaum will primarily focus on the following outpatient minimally-invasive procedures:

  • Prostate embolization for benign prostate enlargement or BPH
  • Hemorrhoid embolization
  • Uterine fibroid embolization
  • Treatment of varicoceles (the leading cause of male infertility)
  • Endovascular treatment of chronic subdural intracranial hemorrhages
  • Knee embolization to treat intractable osteoarthritic pain
  • Use of stellate ganglion blocks (injection of local anesthetic near nerves at the base of the neck) for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Spinal procedures including cement injection to treat severe pain due to osteoporotic compression fractures and spacer device insertion to manage pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis

Dr. Teitelbaum is the author/co-author of more than 100 peer-reviewed scientific journal articles, and he has been issued multiple U.S. and international patents for a variety of medical device inventions. While at Providence, he amassed one of the largest series of endovascular operations in all of Southern California including interventions for acute strokes, cerebral aneurysms, and brain and spinal vascular malformations. In 2015, he introduced prostate embolization to the Los Angeles area.
