Healthy Living: Ablation Saves Kidney

Kidney cancer is one of the top ten most common cancers and often leads to surgical removal of that organ.

But now there’s a cutting-edge procedure that doesn’t use cutting!

It removes cancerous and benign tumors in about one hour and the patient is up walking around the next day.

Courtney Hunter explains in Healthy Living.

Ryan was fortunate.

His tumor was benign.

He’s back to feeling like himself and looking forward to walking his daughters down the aisle with both kidneys intact.

Dr. Muhlenberg says with new improvements to the technology, interventional radiologists are able to treat larger zones and destroy more abnormal tissue.
