Oncology : The nano knife has been FDA approved in 2009 for the surgical ablation of soft tissue, however it has not been approved to treat other specific diseases or conditions. With metastatic cancer your case sounds more complex and worthy of clinical trial status so it is best to consult with your treating oncologist. Be well:)
