Nanoknife locations

Hello,

My granny is 75 and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year. She was not a cannidate for the whipple procedure and is currently recieving chemo treatment. She currently is recieving medical care through St. Joseph Hospital-Marshfield Clinic. I recently heard about the Nanoknife procedure. They do not offer this option in Marshfield, WI. What are the locations/hospitals that offer this procedure? Which ones have the best results with pancreatic cancer? The doctors are not able to see the cancer with the regular scans. Do the locations with the Nanoknife have 3D CTs? We would GREATLY appreciate your help finding information about this.

Thank you,


Stacy

Hi. I'm from Wisconsin too. Not to far away from you. Dr. Martin in Loiusville Kentucky is great. He's at the University of Louisville. I was not a candidate for the nanoknife. But he removed my enlarged spleen and stone filled gallbladder. No one in Wisconsin would preform the surgery. They thought with the cancer it would have been too dangerous. He gained me more time by the surgery. I'm grateful.God 's blessings.

Thank you for your information. I am so happy Dr. Martin  was able to gain you more time. Do you know what the criteria is for being elgible for the surgery?

Thank you again for your help.


Many blessings to you!

I agree.  Dr. Martin is great.  He will do a surgery when others say you are "inoperable."  He gives you a chance!
