Studies have shown that using image guided Cryoablation, a technique where a needle is placed into a tumor, then frozen, can enhance an anti-cancer immune response even in distant tumors. Further studies indicate that using this technique, combined with the injection of immunotherapy agents into the ablation and tumor site, can significantly enhance the effectiveness of the immune response, far more than just the medications or Cryoablation alone.
We offer unique combinations of immunotherapy that are enhanced with intratumoral injection and off label immune augmenting medications. In addition, if you are already receiving immunotherapy, or even chemotherapy, we can work with you and your doctor by adding image-guided injection of immunotherapy to boost your current treatment.
The future of breast cancer treatment, a minimally invasive procedure that can be essentially “scarless.” In addition, techniques such as vaccine adjuvants can be used to enhance the anti-cancer immune response of the Cryoablation procedure. We use techniques to minimize the spread and recurrence of cancer, such as the injection of NSAIDS (Ketorolac) directly into the tumor site when we perform ablations or biopsies.
Cryoablation is the placement of a needle into the tumor, freezing the tissue to destroy it. Typically this is for limited disease, but when combined with immunotherapy it can be helpful even in advanced cancers. This is because Cryoablation releases dead pieces of tumor that can be detected by the immune system, combined with immunotherapy; this functions like a cancer vaccine.
