Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that uses heat and electrical energy to destroy cancer cells. Radiofrequency Ablation in India is primarily used for the patient with very localized cancers. It may be used for the patients who are not fit to undergo any surgery.
This procedure is done generally under ultrasound guidance. Radiofrequency Ablation in India is used in following cancer cases:
RFA is done in the interventional radiology (IR) department by an interventional radiologist. It is done on an outpatient basis. Patient is given a local anaestheic medicine which reduces the discomfort during the procedure. Under the ultrasound or CT guidance the tumour is located and the needle is inserted into the tumour. The radiofrequency generator then generates heat at the tip of the needle inserted in the tumour to kill the cance cells. It takes about 30 minutes to work on oone tumour.
We need to understand that RFA is a palliative treatment. Palliative means that it is used to help with pain or to relieve other symptoms, to improve your quality of life and not to cure your cancer.
