Medtronic OsteoCool™ RF ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that allows your doctor to deliver ablation energy to the precise size and location of your tumor. It uses alternating, low power current to generate heat during the procedure. The heat is delivered by a probe to the tumor to intentionally dry out and kill cancerous cells.
Remember to always talk to your doctor about the benefits and potential complications and risks for any procedure. Damage to surrounding tissue may occur. If you have a tumor in the cervical spine (neck), this therapy is not appropriate for you.
