Get to Know Me

Dr. Allison Aguado is a multiple fellowship-trained pediatric interventional radiologist who uses state-of-the-art radiology imaging equipment to perform minimally invasive procedures, which only require tiny incisions. She’s also been an invited lecturer, active researcher, and an author of medical journal articles and book chapters.

Why I Treat Children

When I was 11 years old, I was hit by a car and spent a month in the hospital recovering. I am forever thankful for the first responders and the doctors and staff who cared for me in the hospital. From this first-hand experience, I understand what it is like to be a patient and strive to transfer that empathy when caring for children.

What I'm Passionate About

Working at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children is especially rewarding because, as part of the Liver Tumor Treatment Program, I get to help children while being right at the forefront of innovative and personalized medicine. I work closely with an outstanding team of doctors to provide our patients with the best care, and I value being involved in the care of children with cancer. My medical interests include: radioembolization with yttrium-90  interventional oncology
