Personal Statement

As an Interventional Radiologist using “real-time” advanced medical imaging, I am able to precisely target areas of the body for treatment through incisions that are less than 5 millimeters. I am excited to provide such cutting edge, high-quality medical care to my patients in a thoughtful and personalized manner.

Practicing at Weill Cornell Medicine, allows me to work closely with other world-renowned experts in oncology, medicine and surgery to elevate the quality of care that we each provide individually to the highest possible standard, together as a team. Each and every day, I strive to provide the best quality care to my patients in a compassionate and welcoming environment.

Biography

Resmi Charalel, M.D. is a radiologist specializing in Vascular & Interventional Radiology.  She is an Assistant Professor of Radiology at Weill Cornell Medicine and an Assistant Attending Radiologist at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medicine. 

Dr. Charalel was recruited to join the Weill Cornell Medicine faculty after completing a fellowship in Interventional Radiology at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University in St. Louis. Dr. Charalel completed her residency in diagnostic radiology at Weill Cornell Medicine/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital with specialized interventional oncology training at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She earned her M.D. from Stanford University and her A.B. from Harvard College in Biochemical Sciences.

Dr. Charalel’s clinical expertise is in vascular and interventional radiology. Her practice focuses on interventional oncology, liver disease and women’s health.  She performs a wide variety of image-guided, minimally invasive surgical procedures for the treatment of cancers involving the liver, colon, pancreas, breast, and kidney. These minimally invasive treatment options provide directed, local therapy to maximize tumor death and minimize systemic toxicity. She also cares for liver disease patients who have portal hypertension with treatment options including transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) creation and balloon/plug assisted retrograde transvenous obliteration of gastric varices. In addition to tailored cancer and liver disease treatment, she focuses on women’s health, providing minimally invasive treatment options for uterine fibroids and pelvic congestion syndrome patients. Furthermore, she performs a variety of other procedures including complex IVC filter retrieval, chest wall port placement, endovascular embolization, percutaneous ablation, and percutaneous and transvenous biopsies.

Dr. Charalel’s research focuses on comparative effectiveness research, patient reported outcomes and quality improvement. She has authored several peer-reviewed articles and presented her award-winning work at several national and international meetings. She serves on national committees to help guide future research and clinical endeavors on a larger scale. Overall, she is dedicated to optimizing clinical care and providing the best quality care to all patients.

In addition to clinical and research activities, Dr. Charalel is an active teacher of fellows, residents, and medical students.
