Cryoablation therapy, also known as cryosurgery, is a minimally invasive treatment that may be recommended for patients with prostate cancer. Additionally, some patients with kidney cancer may be good candidates for this type of cancer treatment. When you watch this video, you’ll hear Dr. Robert Barnett explain how cryoablation is used for cancer treatment.
Dr. Barnett of Urology Associates, P.C. explains how cryoprobes, which are special needles, are inserted directly into the cancerous tissue. Sometimes, this is accomplished with CT guidance. Then, the cancerous tissue is frozen in a controlled manner. This procedure may sometimes be performed with only a local anesthetic.
