Dr. Hinshaw often works with other UW Health specialists across different areas of medicine. He interprets CT scans, ultrasound images and other imaging technologies to diagnose diseases and disorders affecting the kidneys, liver and lungs. He also performs minimally invasive, image-guided procedures to treat cancerous and noncancerous tumors, cysts, diseased tissue and abnormal blood vessel growths.
