Ablation is a minimally invasive technique used to treat a variety of conditions by destroying targeted cells or tissues. A needle is introduced into a mass and tissue is destroyed by heating or cooling. Common applications include treatment of cancers (liver cancer, kidney cancer, soft tissue cancers), cancer metastases and thyroid nodules. Ablation can also alleviate chronic pain by targeting and disabling specific nerve fibers responsible for transmitting pain signals.

With its minimally invasive nature and remarkable precision, ablation represents an important advancement in medical technology, offering patients a safe and effective approach to address a wide range of conditions.
