Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation uses electrical currents to heat and kill tumors, while sparing healthy tissue. Holy Name specialists use X-ray imaging to guide a needle directly into the tumor, transmitting the electrical currents during this outpatient procedure.

Benefits:

  • Helps control tumor growth or eliminate tumors, often in combination with other treatments.
  • Has a low complication rate.
  • Is often done under local sedation.
  • Is well tolerated - patients may be tired, but they can resume regular activities within a few days.
  • The treatment can be repeated if necessary and combined with other types of treatments.
  • May relieve pain and suffering for many cancer patients.
