Ablative Techniques

Radiofrequency ablation

During this procedure a special probe is introduced into the body through a small incision. The probe uses electrodes that emit energy to kill cancer cells.

Cryotherapy

This technique uses liquid nitrogen or liquid carbon dioxide to freeze abnormal cancer cells. The procedure may be performed during surgery or via laparoscopy, which involves only a very small incision through the skin.
