Cancer Ablation

A minimally invasive surgical method to treat solid cancers, cancer ablation utilizes special probes to “burn” or “freeze” cancers without the usual surgery. Computed Tomography (CT), Ultrasound (US), or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used to guide and position the needle probe into the tumor. This requires only a tiny hole, usually less than 3 mm via which the probe is introduced. When the probe is within cancer it is attached to a generator which “burns” or “freezes” cancer.
