Dr. Yoo is an Interventional Radiologist at Texas Children’s Hospital and the Women’s Pavilion, specializing in both adult and pediatric vascular & interventional radiology. After completing medical school and residency in Philadelphia PA, Dr. Yoo undertook training in Adult Vascular & Interventional Radiology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/Harvard Medical School in Boston MA. He received further subspecialty training in Pediatric Vascular & Interventional Radiology at Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School and worked with world-renowned physicians at Boston Children’s Vascular Anomalies Center.
While Dr. Yoo practices the entire scope of Vascular & Interventional Radiology for both adult and pediatric patients, his passion and research interests lie in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular anomalies, including venous and lymphatic malformations, arteriovenous malformations and fistulae, aneurysmal bone cysts, as well as complex disorders including CLOVES, Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome, Gorham-Stout Disease, central conducting lymphatic anomalies, etc. He comes to Texas Children’s Hospital with hopes to bring further recognition to these patients suffering from lifelong disease and to expand treatment options available in Texas and the entire Midwest region.
