This technique achieves ablation or destruction of the selected tumor through freezing. Tumor ablation can also be achieved through heat techniques such as radiofrequency and ultrasound.

However, cold techniques such as cryoablation have shown better results and decrease or eliminate the risk of metastasis.

It can be performed under local anesthesia or general sedation depending on the size of the tumor and the patient's characteristics.

This technique is performed with special, very fine needles that are introduced into the tumor under direct vision with ultrasound, X-ray or CT. A gas is pumped into the cryoprobe in order to freeze the tissue, then the tissue is allowed to thaw. The freezing and thawing process is repeated several times in the same session.


We use Argon gas to freeze malignant or benign tumor tissue, such as in the case of a breast fibroadenoma, for example.

With this technique we can reduce the spread of cancer cells, thus increasing life expectancy and reducing the impact of interventions.

Cryoablation technique is effective in early tumor stages; as it helps us slow down their progression, the results are reassuring.
