Elizabeth’s cancer story started in 2012 when she was diagnosed with invasive vascular ductal carcinoma, a late-stage breast cancer. Elizabeth traveled to Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) in Phoenix, Arizona, from her home in Washington for treatment. After her cancer spread to her surrounding bones, Elizabeth’s back pain made it difficult to fly back and forth for treatments. Her doctor, Dr. Vivek Iyer, recommended the OsteoCool™ RF ablation procedure to treat her cancer pain.
“Following OsteoCool™ RF ablation, my pain level is back to something I can handle.”
Cory’s breast cancer metastasized to her spine and sacrum causing unrelenting lower back pain that brought her into the ER. Not wanting to remain on opioids for her pain, Cory asked her doctor about other options. Dr. Ramsin Benyamin at Millennium Pain Central in Normal, Illinois, recommended OsteoCool™RF ablation to treat her bone tumor pain.
“I just want people to know about it. It’s just been amazing for pain relief for me.”
Colonel Humphrey went to the emergency room because he had unrelenting back pain. He thought his pain was related to something orthopaedic, but he was told he had cancer. Two days after his diagnosis was confirmed, and only four days after hearing he had cancer, Colonel Humphrey received OsteoCool™ RF ablation for his pain.

“I was able to dance with my daughter at her wedding. It was one of the most wonderful moments of our life.”
