About Dr. Sabir
Dr. Sabir joined MD Anderson as Assistant Professor in Interventional Radiology in 2013. His main research interest is quality and safety in Interventional Radiology. The main area in which he has pursued this interest is in the effects of tumor heterogeneity on yields of percutaneous biopsy. Other areas in which Dr. Sabir has focused this interest include percutaneous and endovascular management of renal cell carcinoma, management and care of nephrostomy catheters, and percutaneous ablation of lung metastases. In addition, Dr. Sabir continues work that was started by Dr. Michael Wallace on developing an outcomes database in IR that will allow a comprehensive view of the value of IR. Dr. Sabir is also working on incorporating simulation based training into the IR trainees’ curriculum to assure their safe and effective involvement in the care of patients. His clinical interests, in addition to the above procedures, include percutaneous drainage, an array of loco-regional therapies for various cancers, and MRI guided interventions.
