Here are some...: Nanoknife ablation is a descriptive term portraying the use of high-tech small probes to deliver the energy of freezing or radio frequency to destroy unwanted tissue or cancer; so, it is not an open surgery, but has its own limitation especially in tumor size and location. Yet, no procedure is perfect but with its own pros & cons. More? Ask treating doctors timely.
