Why Choose Florida Hospital?
Cancer is a serious disease characterized by abnormal cells growing out of control with the capability to invade tissues, muscles, organs, bloodstream, and the bones. Tumor burning (also known as tumor ablation) is a non-surgical treatment option in which radiofrequency (RF) ablation emits RF energy into the cancer cells and/or tumor to destroy them. This non-surgical procedure involves injecting a needle into the tumor, and then sending an electrical current to cauterize the cancer cells and/or tumor. Specialists at Florida Hospital Cancer Institute are developing new techniques to make tumor burning an effective treatment option in fighting cancer. Call a doctor at Florida Hospital to discuss tumor burning (tumor ablation).
