Tumor Ablation and Kyphoplasty
Cancerous tumors can destroy bone and cause fractures. This can be a source of debilitating pain for cancer patients who are dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy and the emotional stress surrounding their disease.
Using the most advanced equipment, we use radiofrequency ablation (heat created by radio waves) to first destroy the tumor, followed by Kyphoplasty to strengthen weak areas and stabilize bone damage.
This minimally invasive treatment can:
- Provide immediate pain relief for many patients
- Improve sleep
- Make walking and sitting less painful or pain-free
- Allow patients suffering from these painful tumors to once again participate in the activities they enjoy
- Reduce or eliminate pain medication
