Sometimes patients and doctors are faced with a situation when the tumour or its metastases in the liver, kidneys, lungs or bones have been diagnosed, but the surgical resection or this oncological formation is not possible. The development of the tumour is limited by chemotherapy or radiation, the effectiveness in these case may not produce the desired result.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is an efficient and considerate method of treatment of different tumour types in liver, bones, kidneys, lungs. Healthy tissue around the tumour remain intact during the procedure, while the cancer cells are being destroyed.
During the procedure, the doctor enters the tumour mass through the skin with a thin needle. The insertion process of the correct radiofrequency needle into the tumour is controlled by the ultrasound or computed tomography apparatus, which is used also for visual diagnostics and evaluating the therapy. Before the Radiofrequency Ablation procedure the patient undergoes anesthesia. A month after the procedure, dead tumour cells turn into scar tissue.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive surgery with minimal interference and speedy recovery. In our clinic “DiaMed” it is performed in a modern operating room, which is equipped with medical equipment and technological equipment corresponding to modern requirements.

The method of the treatment, its necessity and potential effectiveness is evaluated by the treating doctor. Compliance of the patient with Radiofrequency Ablation is mainly determined by two main factors – size of the tumour and its localization. The doctor will inform the patient how to prepare for the operation.
