Bone/Spine Tumor Radiofrequency Ablation

Bone/Spine Tumor Radiofrequency Ablation

(RF ablation, Osteocool) and vertebroplasty

Bone/Spine Tumor Radiofrequency Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure using radiofrequency needles to kill the tumor cells in the spine or other bones that are causing severe pain or fractures. This procedure can be used to treat almost all types of tumors, including multiple myeloma. The procedure is done using needles so there are only tiny incisions (<1/4 inch) and minimal recovery time. In some cases, cement will be placed into the tumor to stabilize the bone if there is a fracture. This procedure is targeted for patients with severe pain (>7/10) and who require high strength pain medications. The goal of the procedure is to significantly decrease your pain and allow you to return to normal activities. 

This procedure is also used to treat the pain from osteoid osteomas.
