Tumor ablation is a minimally invasive surgical method to treat solid cancers. Special probes are used to “burn” or “freeze” cancers while avoiding traditional surgery. CT, ultrasound or MRI technology is used to guide and position the needle probe in to the tumor.
The procedure requires a small incision, less than 3mm. When the probe is within the cancer, it is attached to a generator that “burns” or “freezes” the cancer.
