Cancer Treatment

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a conventional cancer treatment that sends electrical energy to liver tumors through a special catheter. Once heated, the cancer cells usually die within 15 minutes. Using RFA, physicians are able to treat localized liver cancer that hasn't responded to chemotherapy or can't be removed safely, or where previous surgeries have been performed and there's a recurrence of the cancer.
